For the chroot behavior you desire, put the usernames in the
file /etc/ftpchroot (check docs on your FTP daemon; this is correct for
in.ftpd but may not be for others.)
You'll want to turn on disk quotas too.

If he wants everything chroot including telnet and cgi running on the
webserver, it is a bit more complicated than that. Basically all
necessary binaries and libs have to be duplicated or linked to the users
home dir. I wouldn't want to be on such a system because I help people,
and you cannot help other users if you cannot see anything, even if they
want you to.
