    FTP access in Red Hat Enterprise

    I currently have a Red Hat enterprise 3.0 server that I am renting.

    Now what I am doing is renting a slot out to a person for a gameserver so I created a user as server1 and then created a password.

    That then gave him a default directory of /home/server1 when he ssh's in. However when he FTP's in it puts in in the root directory with all the differnt folders, /etc /var /usr etc now he cant' access any of them , but I need him to be put into into /home/server1 when he ftp's in.

    I did a google search and tried a couple different things from what I found but still have the same problem

    chroot is what you are needing , man chroot probably will help.
    Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
