Thanks a ton, that got me going straight away, Im using centos4.2 , so a
little newer than rhel3, but all the same, the config was great. I made
a couple of changes ie didn't want to view dot files. and everything is
good. Now I can go back and figure out what I was doing wrong and learn
the config file a little better with the man page.

Can I copy your config? That should get me started, and then I can learn

This is on a RHEL3 box, with vsftpd 1.2.1 (stock RPMs).
Theres' some comments in my config that talk about chooting:
# You may specify an explicit list of local users to chroot() to their home
# directory. If chroot_local_user is YES, then this list becomes a list of
# users to NOT chroot().
# (default follows)
Perhaps the default is locking you out?
Also worth checking: passwd_chroot_enable .
Other regular FTP things to check: user shell, PAM config. /var/log/secure (or
wherever your AUTH and AUTHPRIV syslogs go) might give some clues why it's
being locked out.
Oh by the way, SLUG is really cool, I live on the Gold Coast, and while
the local LUG mail list is okay, you Sydney folk really have it rocking.
Almost makes me want to move back ........ I said almost.
Maybe I can make it down for an event soon
