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.

Authenticated users use own directories (if authenticated users are enabled at all)
If they are not "any password will work"
names like ftp, fetch and anonymous are treated as anonymous user that has home in /var/ftp

It is polite to mention OS version, because yast (v1) was last seen 10 years ago...
