Check out the ftpd man page.  Specifically, look for the section that
refers to the file /etc/ftpchroot.  Assuming that you don't want your
users to be able to access anything other than the contents of their
home directory when logging in via ftp, then place those users names in
the /etc/ftpchroot file.  When they log in they will be chrooted to
the home directory listed for that user the /etc/passwd
(or master.passwd) file.
