Which ftp server program are you using? Vsftpd and proftpd have fairly comprehensive configuration files, which should explain how to do what you're looking for.

I'm not familiar with pureftpd, so can't offer any direct advice, other than the obvious "read the documentation"! From a quick glance, pureftpd looks very complicated to configure to me. If you have a choice over which program to use, you might want to try vsftpd instead. Sorry not to be more help.
