I want to chroot the 'only' ftp user account that is permitted.  So,
I've put every account in ftpusers EXCEPT the one I want permitted.
So far that works, though the name suggests a reverse logic, ie
ftpusers implies users who MAY ftp in to me... But it wouldn't be the
first time my logic was reversed...

Anyway, I want to chroot the ftp user to a special file system so I
used the ftpchroot file as follows:

=====================
cat /etc/ftpchroot
=====================
#  by db
#  2003-06-25
softsys      /mnt/newdisk/ ./ghosted

====================

This seems consistend with the syntax mentioned in the man page, yet
when I attempt to log in as softsys, I get the message 
===================
Name (XXXX:xxxx): softsys
331 Password required for softsys.
Password:
550 Can't change root.
Login failed.
===================

any advice?
