Handling untrusted softwares

One of my main security concern with my Linux desktop is that I have to use (for some reasons) highly untrusted software like Skype. So the classic way to handle this is to run it as an different (unprivileged) user.

But from what I understand what you showed us here is fantastic because I could say Skype can only access ~/.skype/, ~/Download/, the network through the HTTP port and basta !

So my question is : how do we do this on a Fedora 9 box for example?

Thanks ;-)
