Angry [FIXED!] Help with WU-FTPD Guest/Real CHMOD

I've tried to read the man pages and HOWTOs for WU-FTPD, but I still can't seem to get this to work. Whenever I login to my FTP server using a guest or real account, I'm not allowed to change the CHMOD of files or directories. I have the following in my FTP access file:

chmod no anonymous
chmod yes real,guest

Does anyone have some simple instructions to make my CHMOD work?

I found the problem, seems I needed to CHOWN the directories I needed to access for that user, so they could CHMOD them. I guess the default ownership wasn't set b/c I had a custom directory created for 4 different users to use. Oh well, it was all fixed by a simple

chown -R matt2.ftpers
