su prompts for a password when no such is set


Hello everyone,

Story: i use Fedora9 and i want to set up a FTP server whithout creating a home dir for each and every user, i want them to share 1 home dir. All users are in one group.

Problem: i write the following:
Code:
root# useradd -d /home/ftp_home -g ftp_users -M user1
root# useradd -d /home/ftp_home -g ftp_users -M user2
root# su - user1
user1$ su - user2
Password: 
su: incorrect password
user1$
This happens no matter what password i enter. I can only log into user2 if i type user1$ logout ; root#su - user2
