True Blue Newbie

Well, Someone setup freebsd with pro ftpd on a pc for me as an ftp server, then is gone. I know nothing about the command line so I use the webmin interface. I can create users, and set them into their own folders, but they cannot copy into it, or anything. How do I set folder permissions, so that person A cannot get into personB's folder? and can add and delete files from their own.

Well, Like I said, I've never used linux. Can I do this from the Webmin or do I have to go to command line? It seems like you should be able to, since you can create and delete folders in webmin, and create and delete users in webmin. It seems like it should be simple. I'm missing it somewhere.
