I'm trying to create a different user than frontrow so it can only read from my usb harddrive that is connected to my apple tv. Also, it would be great if i could make a /dump directory so it can upload files to that directory only. In the end i just want to give this id to friends so they can access my drive remotely with afp and ssh. I've already set the latter up, but i just want to play a little safe.

I've looked into the following article discribing how to use niutil to do the job, but i'm wondering if anyone on this board has actually already tried this before.
