Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I tried to clean it up skipping a bunch of commented out stuff, so here you go
# Allow anonymous FTP? (Beware - allowed by default if you comment this out).
# Uncomment this to allow local users to log in.
# Uncomment this to enable any form of FTP write command.
# Default umask for local users is 077. You may wish to change this to 022,
# if your users expect that (022 is used by most other ftpd's)
# Activate logging of uploads/downloads.
# Make sure PORT transfer connections originate from port 20 (ftp-data).
# You may override where the log file goes if you like. The default is shown
# If you want, you can have your log file in standard ftpd xferlog format
# You may change the default value for timing out an idle session.
# It is recommended that you define on your system a unique user which the
# ftp server can use as a totally isolated and unprivileged user.
# You may fully customise the login banner string:
ftpd_banner=Welcome to TDN FTP service. All activity is logged.
# You may specify an explicit list of local users to chroot() to their home
# directory. If chroot_local_user is YES, then this list becomes a list of
# users to NOT chroot().
# (default follows)
# When "listen" directive is enabled, vsftpd runs in standalone mode and
# listens on IPv4 sockets. This directive cannot be used in conjunction
# with the listen_ipv6 directive.
# If enabled, vsftpd will display directory listings with the time in your
# local time zone. The default is to display GMT
Like I said earlier, the users are all in the same group. The users can delete the folders fine if they are uploaded from a PC. It must be a setting on the Mac that changes something when they upload that prevents them from deleting the folder. Maybe someone else has experienced this before and can chime in. Thanks for trying.
