To do that you need to set up a chrooted FTP enviornment for that user. What's involved with that depends on what Unix & FTP server you are using.

I always suggest the installation/use of vsftpd. It's a very good (and very secure) ftp server which allows you to do all that very easily.

JLevie - I resolved the answer by another root (apologies for not keeping this thread current).
