    User Rights


    I need to change rights for one user on a redhat box. I want this user to have rights to one folder and one folder only. I've been working with linux for a while now, just never need to limit rights in this manner.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Hmm.. you can't, unless you set a chroot jail, so the user can't get out of his home directory.

    Can you be more specific to your question?
    Do you mean only one folder including the default folders or only one folder total and what about a home dir? I can help you with this if you are a little more specific to your needs.
    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    You could give other folders, by hand only root acces and let that folder with user acces...
