OK this probably isn't over help full but I seen to think 
that CHROOT may help lock users in.

Please feel free to let me know if I'm talking crap ;)

I heard chroot jail from a number of people. My past experiences with
chroot jails (like for Amavisd/Postfix) have been that I need to make a
copy of the file system (/bin, /sbin, /usr/bin...) in the chroot'ed jail
for the program to access those files.

Will a SSHd chroot jail work differently then a 'normal' chroot jail? I
haven't set up the coffee IV yet, so this might not be clicking in my
mind :-).
