One shared folder for multiple ftp users -- vsftpd


I'm using Fedora 1 with vsftpd. I'm not running Samba

What I like to setup is a shared ftp-home directory. So if user1 connect he can read and write to the ftp-home directory. If user2 is connecting he is all so able to read and write to the same folder.

I create the user1 with useradd -d /ftp-home/friends and
I create the user2 with useradd -d /ftp-home/friends

When I connect to the server as user2, I can edit the directory.
But if I connect with user1, I cannot edit the directory. I can few the folder but I'm unable to delete or place a folder or file.

This is probably not the right way of setting up a shared ftp-folder. But I don't know how I should set this up.

Can anyone tell me how I should setup a shared ftp-folder for multiple users.
