SubjectSpecial Kernel Modification Results
Hello All,

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for the help and I think that I will be
able to figure out some nice solution based upon all of the suggestions given to me.

Originally I thought that this might be a kernel issue in that we could make a
filesystem to handle this problem, but now I see that there has to be another

It is nice that in Linux a person can easily set permissions to prevent someone
from entering a particular directory, but for the special projects when you want
to somehow confine them to their HOME directory then the standard permissions
are somewhat illsuited for the task.

There is always the problem of being able to see the binaries from the users
directories if you were to lock them in.

In any case, I am thinking that a combination of chroot and hard-links might do
the trick.

Thanks again to all,
