creating users with vsftpd

hi there i was wondering how to create user accounts in vsftpd so i can make admin accounts etc i am wondering how i can create an account that will only allow the user to logg in to one directory (/var/www/html) so that they can only upload there files to that one directory (and cannot move out of it) and can delete from that dir. i can logg on with my current user account i created in redhat but i can browse the whole computer and i cant upload anything i have not got access so it says. please can any one help. thanks
