one question is that you mean the user via ftp can go arround into system file ? there got to do with ftp daemon config file
what ftpd you are using?
Exra Information for adding user
1) the user be able to do ftp as normal
2) also able to change password them self
for no.2. need to do this way
# echo "/usr/bin/passwd" >> /etc/shells
after you adduser, edit /etc/passwd change from /bin/bash or from /sbin/nolgin to /usr/bin/passwd for that user line and save it
or you can do adduser -s /usr/bin/passwd youruser
with this way, user can change thier own pass with ssh to the box and it
work only for that purpose
