I want to limit USERS ftp logins to either their /home/<user> dir or the /home dir..  I'm not talking about anonymous users but users that have an account..  Should be nice and simple but it's possibily not :)

It is possible by including a guestgroup that is the same as the users group in your /etc/ftpaccess.  You will have to set up the user's home directory the same as for anonymous ftp, with the bin, dev, etc and lib directory structures.  This is a pain if you have a lot of users but it is not too bad if the number is small.

If you can't trust your users, and most people can't dont give them access to your server at all by giving them an untrusted login shell that will only give them ppp.  This will also deny them ftp access.  Personnaly, I give my user a ppp only shell without access to any of the server and most are OK with this.
