It didn't work for me. did the cd /etc, then pico ftpchroot as root, entered my user name, hit command-x, hit Y, and hit return. Restarted the Mac and I can still view upward directories. Any ideas?

Does the account your are trying to 'chroot' have Administrative privledges? If it does, 'ftpchroot' may not work for it. Try creating another account with user privledges, and 'chroot' that one. Worked for me.....
