Several Qs/problems

I've been toying with linux for about 6 months now. I've gotten ftp, ssh, http and almost emails all off a mysql DB. I've got security settings in place as well... These are my Qs:

1. Is there a way to limit ssh to just the root user. I plan to have users hosted virtually through nss-mysql but I don't want them in ssh.

2. I'm having issues with I have the software installed and all the settings are right and everything is set up to par with the install file (everything but the DBs) I try to start the sendmail and this is what i get:
Shutting down sendmail: [ OK ]
Shutting down sm-client: [FAILED]
Starting sendmail: [ OK ]
Starting sm-client: [ OK ]

However sm-client never starts. I'm going to attempt to make out the gibberish in this install to make the tables needed. However if anyone has had experience with this plz let me know if you can help.

3. I want to be able to control if my users have email, ftp, or web access via my virtual user DB located in mysql. This DB is on nss via I have this piece of software up and running without any problems.
