put the user in jail environment

hello friend,

I'v been puzzling for a long time how to make a jail environment for the particular user.

The scenario is this:
You have users as user1, user2 and user3 in FC8 system. user1 and user2 are the normal linux users but user3 is the special one i'd like to lock down. I mean when user3 logged into system, all he/she can do is browsing (run firefox) nothing more.

How can I do this, is there anyways ...?

Set up xguest user under SELinux.

1, read this,

2. install xguest rpm
yum info xguest
yum install xguest

Wow! I just skimmed the article, but this is great stuff! I locked down my son in FC4 by "hiding" everything, which would not work for anyone beyond a 6 year old mentality. This is awesome.

Thanks SlowJet,

I got xguest installed on my machine with FC8, tried many times, It was giving some errors when I do yum install xguest . After yum update, yum install xguest it works.

Now it is working fine, but the thing is still I see the menus on the toolbar such as Application, Places and System.
Inside Application menu, I see all the menu items like Accessories, Games, Office, and Sound & Video etc,

Frankly, I dont want them to be on the toolbar. Anyways to do it? <

it is not possible to do something more accurate such as what could be done with NTFS "allow this, allow this, not this, and this too..."?
