home users with vsftpd

I want to set for each user a directory different from the default one at /home/user.
Any suggestion? thanks

From "man useradd":
-d home_dir
The new user will be created using home_dir as the value for the
user's login directory. The default is to append the login name
to default_home and use that as the login directory name.
