Hi Matt!

  If you are talking about givin FTP access only, then
  the easiest way to do it is just adding the user to the file 
  and thats all!!
  if the file does not exist. then create it.

  add to /etc/ftpchroot all users that you want them to ftp but never see 
any upper level of shell.

  have fun,
