VSFTP: multiple users with same home directory

Hello everybody!

I'm a Linux Newbie.

I need to create 3 ftp users to access the same home directory:

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

make 3 users
make a group
add all 3 users to this group

give the group access to /home/user001

and to make it simple:
change the homedir of the users to /home/user001

Thanks a lot. That solved my problem.

I also had to edit vsftpd.conf and change local_umask=07 so that all files uploaded by the group have read/write priviledges (660).
