I'm assuming that you're trying to set the directory for anonymous ftp. The
directory used is the home directory for the user "ftp". Set this to
whatever you want as the root directory of your ftp service (but you can't
use YAST for this if the directory already exists), and you should be ready
to roll. Of course, make sure that user "ftp" can read the files and

Hope this helps.
