I'd like to create a few "secure" accounts on a relay server, to let
some user only use the ssh or telnet commands to connect another
server in a LAN. The relay server is pretty busy (webhosting server),
and the ssh users should only be able to see their /home/directetory,
not below -> chroot.

My problem is to find how to do that by using chroot: I found
some short docs and tools (jail), but I can't manage to make it
work, so my question: is there anybody here using chroot, and
wo could cut/n/paste me the correct /etc/passwd lines and steps
to create the account? Thanks in advance!
