Question Solaris 8 ftp access

I just setup my ftp server on Solaris 8. Everything works fine...except I do not want to allow certain users to be able to change directories outside of their /home directory. In other wors I don't want everyone to be able to view files in other folders outside of their home directoy. I know how to do it running wu-ftp, but this is not exactly the same. Does anyone know how to accoplish this. I did a search and didn't find anything that covered this topic.
