The simplest approach is to set permissions on these private directories as required. You can set the owner of the directory as the specified user, give them read-write-change (or whatever) permission, and deny access to everybody else.

The operating system will take care of the rest.

There is a Tricky Bit if you're using Windoze with IIS as the FTP server, and if you're using Windoze and IE4/5/6 as the client. Using the default configuration, authorised users won't see any prompt for user ID and password. This makes their life easioer, but more full of mystery. Unauthorised users will simply get a blank screen, or a screen telling them they're unauthorised. I prefer to go into IIS and tell it to always prompt the user, no matter what browser they're using.

On the other hand, if you're using a "real O/S" and a "real webserver", you won't have this little feature, and all users will get properly prompted.
