tip. Edit vhcs.sh from siemens-mobiles and remove any line that change the
source.list's apt file (I put a # in front of 10 o more lines). It use testing
and make a lot o disaster in a stable debian configuration. Just put some nice
apt source before you begin installation (use apt-setup) and then replace any
'testing' for 'stable' in /etc/apt/source.list
Oh!! Use a
clean Debian installation before you start sh vhcs.sh ( and, very
important, before that do a apt-update; apt-upgrade)

That's more to the system
itself, don't your customers already have a group of their own? If not, they
should, use that group on 2) for example.

Basically you just need the directive
"DefaultRoot ~" (~
means home directory, like "cd ~" in shell)
in your proftpd.conf.
It's possible to implement more magic, as proftpd understands ACLs. Also, I
"DefaultRoot ~ !staff" (the "!" negates the following
which means, all users are bound to their home directory
except those in the group staff.

As in 1) - nothing to do with proftpd itself. I us ally don't
give a valid shell in /etc/passwd like /bin/noshell or the like. Also, noone
should be able to get a shell to your system anyway except physically at the
console. For instance you can define who's allowed to ssh to your machine
and the like.

I think the proftpd.conf is
pretty good commented, also I think there was a good document on proftpd
somewhere in the debian manuals section.
