The default ftpd will work with a little tweaking.

1.  touch /bin/ftpshell
2.  echo "/bin/ftpshell" >> /etc/shells
3.  When you add your users, set their shell to /bin/ftpshell
4.  echo USERNAME >> /etc/ftpchroot

The users will be able to login via ftp and nothing else because there shell
is a crap fake shell.  The ftpchroot will lock them into their home
directory very effectively.
