I would also suggest limiting ftp users to their respective home dir. You
can do this simply by creating a file /etc/ftpchroot and putting all the
usernames in there.

You just use the 'adduser' command normally, to add a "normal"
user. If they are just going to be doing ftp, you can use the
/sbin/nologin for their shell, so they can't login.
