PureFTPd, Users are able to leave /home

I got PureFTPd setup perfect last night. But noticed one problem. I set the option for the user to be 'jailed' into their /home directory. This is not the case. I can use a basic user to goto anywhere on the box and download files.

Any ideas?

Thank you trickykid. For some reason I thought the Pure-FTPD config was supposed to do that for me. I am all fixed up.

Thanks again.
