At least not unless you change their homes in /etc/passwd which would have a *lot* of side-effects. You could consider ProFTPD instead. It's more flexible configuration-wise than vsftpd and I think was at one stage a standard part of older RH distros. Of course increased complexity and configuration scope can increase the chance of insecurity through misconfiguration. proftpd-1.2.10-8.2.el4.rf.i386.rpm is available from Dag and the boys at RPMForge. Will.
