ProFTPD, one dir, multiple hd's


I have three harddisks mounted and I would like all the dirs on them, to show up on the FTP server. I've tried out a suggestion posted in this thread:

I've done:
mount --bind /home/hd1 /home/ftp
mount --bind /home/hd2 /home/ftp
mount --bind /home/hd3 /home/ftp

Unfortunately, only the dirs on hd1 will show up in the FTP server. I've also tried to use symlinks, but that doesn't work either.

Does anyone know a solution on how to mound multiple harddisks to only one ftp directory (/home/ftp)?

If you were willing, for simplicity, make three sub-directories /home/ftp/hd1, /home/ftp/hd2, and /home/ftp/hd3 (or whatever you wish to name them) and mount your drives in those folders. It would work really well if you had your stuff organized in some sort of classification for each drive (ex. ISOs on hd1, setups on hd2, pics on hd3) or something. That would be my preferred method.
