FTP user permissions

I'm using Ubunut 9.04 and i have installed proftpd. Also using webmin.
I need to create 2 ftp users.
The first one can see the content of directory - have all ftp basic command access.
The second one cane only upload files, but cannot list directory content.
I don't understand how to do this. I need to do this from ftp side or Linux user permission side? Please help me!!!!!
Sorry for my English

Try setting up acls on the directories using the setfacl command.

setfacl -m user:ftpuser1:rx <directoryname>

setfacl -m user:ftpuser2:wx <directoryname>

w on a directory means to write files into it
r on a directory means to be able to do ls
x on a dreictory means to be able to cd into it.
