Exclamation VSFTPD Debian VSFTPD "unrecognised variable in config file"

I just installed Debian 3.0r2, used apt-get to install vsftpd, grabbed the config file from my Mandrake machine that I know works, fine tuned it for the Debian box, and I get:
"500 OOPS: unrecognized variable in config file" when I run vsftpd. I have checked every directive against the vsftpd man on the Debian box, and they all check out ok, spelling and all...

Anyone else have this problem?? It's killing me...
