Folder permission

Hi,

I created user1 & user2 on my Linux machine. User2 cannot access home directory of user1. How user2 access the user1 home directory without changing owner of the directory. from root user, i tried chmod 755 /home/user1. But user2 trying to change directory it provides permission denied error.

Thanks for advance

Why, may I ask, is user1's home directory owned by root in the first place?
