proftpd, accesscontrol


Hi!
I've just installed proftpd on mandrake 9.2. What I'd like to do is to create a user (with password) that can access some directories on my mounted VFAT-drive but nothing else. I tried to create a user and placed symbolic links to these directories in it's homedirectory, but if i used defaultroot ~, you couldn't see the links and if i didn't the users could view and download everything.

Regards,
Martin

Here comes my proftpd.conf

ServerName "fragile ftp"
ServerType inetd
DefaultServer on
SystemLog /var/log/proftpd.log

port 21
Umask 022

MaxInstances 30

User ftp
Group ftp

<Directory />
AllowOverwrite on
</Directory>

defaultroot ~
