I don't understand what you want to do.

The normal state of affairs is that users can go anywhere in the file
system.  It is possible to use permissions to restrict access to some
directories; for example you may have a private directory under your
home directory, to which you deny access to anyone else.

For information on permissions and their use see <http://www.debian.org/~hp/tut
for detailed information, use `man chmod' and `man 2 chmod'.
