Exclamation vsFTPd deny everyone. Why?

I am completly confused here...

I am running vsFTPd on a RH9 box using 2.4.20-20.9 as a web server for family that use IE to ftp in/out files. No matter what account I try to use, everyone is denied access. I set this up like I have many times before and I must be missing something. Please do not take that like I know what I am doing! Below is my vsFTPd.conf:

ftpd_banner=Welcome message

I am trying to create a secure FTP, that does not allow anonymous users, for family using IE to ftp in/out files. I want only persons with local machine accounts to be able to log on and have them restricted to their home directory. The accounts all have a home directory under /home/<username>. What am I missing!?!?!?!?

Sorry, but...

I have done a search and reviewed previous posts and the posts listed below concerning vsFTPd. Unfortnatly I have not encountered a thread that discusses my problem.
I had my vsFTPd working before with these exact settings but now after someone enters a username and password, they are denied access no matter what.
I will continue studying the link you provided but I was hopping that someone has encountered this before.
