One way would be to put a symlink from somewhere in the Apache/Zope
directory to the proper dir in the FTP area. Depending on your
configuration files, this may or may not work.
Otherwise, for Apache you could modify the access.conf to add the proper
directory, something like this. http://yourhost.example.com/ftp would then
send you to /home/ftp/anonymous
Alias /ftp /home/ftp/anonymous
