Is it possible to assign a specific home-directory for each ftp user??

I started working on an issue where I have an ftp server already existing that has been set with yast. I need to create another user with a directory different from the existing one. Unfortunately it seems that yast allows to set a different directory only for "anonymous users" and another one for "authenticated users". Is there any other way I can set a different directory for a new ftp user??

by default the user's home directory are being used as ftp directory.
