I have my computer running on Fedora 8, with opened SSH port. I want allow users to login (mates, etc.) but access only one specific directory (their directory), actually I am only user, I don't want any changes of it, because I can do all configs etc. under the root accout. But I don't want to allow the other users to view the /etc, /usr etc. etc. directories, only /home/theirname (if it is possible then redirect them immediately after their login to this directory).

So, is this possible? Thanks in advance for any help.

But... Samba is the file server? I mean... I'm already using it, to share files on my computer with other computers (running Windows) on the network.

then u should change the script

with samba u can make 4 every user an account with specified directories and rights.

(the script is located in /etc/samba/smb.conf)
