	There is a thing like  bash --restricted. It does restrict
changing the PATH variable and cd'ing above the home directory. I hope you
can set the PATH variable to ~/bin, copy the commands you want him to use
to ~/bin. The shell will not allow it to use the commands like /usr/bin or
anyother with a / in the command.

	Hopefully reading the docs will give u the complete info.
