I would agree with this.  Try just creating a user with "rbash" as his login
shell and then "sudo /bin/su - username".  Poke around and see what you are
able to do, and you'll find out if it meets your needs.  rbash is not as
secure as SELinux or creating a chroot environment but it is a whole lot
easier to set up.
