try this settings in vsftpd.conf:
what will these do? if user1 is in the vsftp.chroot_list, he will be chrooted to /iso when he ftps to your machine. If user2 is not in the chroot list and he makes an ftp connection, the default directory will be /iso but he can still cd into his home directory ( ie cd /home/user2).
You might want to experiment with vsftp.conf. check the man page for vsftpd.conf
btw, user1 and user2 are real users.
