  Use mount_null to mount the shared "mp3" directory in home directories of
users you want to give access to that directory :

mount_null /var/mp3 /home/john/mp3
mount_null /var/mp3 /home/joe/mp3

  Alternatively, some other FTP servers can follow symbolic out of home
directories, while preserving the chroot feature.
