I've opened ports 20, 21 and 1025 to 1029 via SuSEfirewall2 on 10.3.

If all the ports are taken is there a way of telling the next user to wait or
try again later? As it is it just leaves them wondering and waiting and
allowing more users makes the system too slow.

Am I correct in assuming it's one port per user?

You're not using the correct way of handling this.
Use vsftpd's 'max_clients' and 'max_per_ip' parameters to limit the
number of users. That way excess users get a sensible error when
they try to connect.
See vsftpd.conf(5)
