Ftp and port 21

I just upgraded from Suse 9.2 to 9.3. After the upgrade my port #21 stays closed. I have the firewall disabled. My ftp site worked fine right up until I did the upgrade. The upgrade went smooth. What could be the problem? Maybe fstab? I'm lost.

Are you sure your FTP server is still starting by itself after the upgrade?

No firewall + closed port = no service listening on that port (to me at least)

No, I never restarted the FTP service after the upgrade. I guess I thought it would magically start itself.
Thanks for the help.
