User management in Apache and Proftpd

I have recently installed Apache in my linux box and I would like to know how to make it so that when I add a user , he gets his own webspace on the server.
Also , how can I make an user that has access to a folder on a FAT32 partition , since I want to make an user that has access to certain files that are on my win2k partition through ftp.
I made a symlink on the user`s home folder to the folder on the FAT32 partition but when I ftp I cant access that folder.I chmoded it 755 but it cant make it r-x for other groups except for root so it just stays 744 and it cant be accessed.
Any ideas?

For the apache and adding webspace, I presume using the userdir in apache and it will ready their public_html directory in their home directory, just hack and add to the adduser script in slackware to create the public_html folder after the user is created.

For the FTP, it might be that symlinks are turned off, not sure as I'm not really sure what your exactly trying to do.
