NEED HELP WITH FTP user account and directory setup

I have modified my proftpd.conf file to chroot users and disallow anonymous logins. I created a user group and shared directory call /home/ftp-users. I made a dir called /home/ftp-docs, did a chmod 750 on /home/ftp-docs and chown root: ftp-users /home/ftp-docs. I can't seem to view the user directory. i see the users listed in the passwd file. how do i set up directory structures like: /home/ftp-docs/TN0100/jul2004/bills with only the user being able to access his specific directories and files???.
