Webmin and FTP

My RH9 setup is installed and I was posting my web-pages from within Dreamweaver using its ftp client OK.

Yesterday I loaded Webmin. Now I cannot connect using the ftp client to my /var/www/html directory as I could before webmin was loaded. (I like webmin for sorting mySQL databases albeit a learner).

I can ftp connect to the /home/user and it shows as "/". Trying to connect elsewhere gives me error 550. How can I allow my ftp access to run to any chosen directory please? I cannot see the solution; I bet it is easy but man oh man....

Thanks in advance

By the way, I have established that proFTP is the running daemon and have shut down vsftpd. So I guess my question now is how do I configure the daemon to allow a user to ftp to selectable directories (as it seemed to allow with vsftpd)?
