ProFTPd - filesystem [need help]


I'm trying to set up a ftp-server but I got a few problems.
I can't get the filesystem to work right.

I want every user to have access to the 'homedir' (/users/username) and to a 'ftpdir' (/home/ftp) but I don't find a easy way to do this. I've tried to symlink but it won't let me link or access the files in 'ftpdir'
I also tried to mout 'ftpdir' into 'homedir', this sort of works but it's dangerous. If I suddently deletes a file folder in 'homedir' that belongs to 'ftpdir' it will be deleted both places if you understand what I mean.

So do anyone have a easy solution on my problem?

So you want your users to be able to write to their directory in /users but be able to read /home/ftp? Please explain the difference.

Can you remove write permissions from this ftpdir you want to protect?
