I want to setup a new ftp server for our institute so
currently I am playing around with vsftpd.

Everything is fine, put I have one problem:
when a normal user is using ftp, he/she will
first be in the HOME of the user. OK, that's fine.
But it is not possible to use "cd ~ftp" for a normal
user to go to the public ftp place.
You can enter the path by hand (absolut path) , but I
do not like absolut pathes (you have always trouble
changing absolut pathes).

Any idea ?
