Check out the vsftpd.conf man page and search for 'chroot'. I have it
enabled and lock every into their home directory. Then I also enable
the exclude list so that when I ftp in I can go anywhere.
Here's the excerpt from my config:
# You may specify an explicit list of local users to chroot() to their
# home directory. If chroot_local_user is YES, then this list becomes
# a list of users to NOT chroot().
# chroot everyone
# enable the excempt list
# and here's the list
