Talking vsftpd virtual user

Thank you for reading my post I am a Linux newbie, I used to be a Win32 Only user, I knew that Linux is far more stable and secure than Win32 but I just don't have the time in the pass to try it, now I do, I know how to use basic commands/features build-in Linux. Now I want to setup vsftpd to do the following:

I want to create some virutal user, like username1 to /home/user1/ , username2 to /home/user2/ , no I don't want to make a local account for them. they can have read/write permission only to their home folder, no where else,absolutly no execute permission, and I don't want them to CD out of their home folder (I guess that's what virual user for, right ?)

Any ideas ? because I followed excatly what it saids on the vsftpd virutal user but nothing seems to be working, any suggestions welcome! Thanks!

Redhat 9(Kernel 2.4.20) with vsftpd 1.1.3. Thanksss!

seems to me like you want them to chroot.
Have a search on chroot in combination with vsftpd
