Hey guys,

I just created a guest account for my home ubuntu server. What I am trying to do is allow who ever is logged in as guest to have access to certain files. I need to do a couple of things.

1.) when i am in the guest account and ls my home dir my personal one comes up so there for I would like to encrypt my home folder so i wont have anyone else(guest) accessing it.

2.) I have pretty much all my files on an external hdd that I would like my user to scan and browse through right now it is mounted on my root account and I do not see it in the guest. I would like to make the guest account to only read and NOT write to the files,downloading would be useful too. how would I make this happen?
