can't enable FTP service to accept logins
I have a slackware 12 distro (actually backtrack 3) that I want to enable FTP logins. So I start the proftp service with in.proftpd
But when I attempt login with ftp, I get "530 Login incorrect" after entering the correct password for the account.
What can I do to fix this?

Have you checked for a configuration file for proftpd? I think there is a config file besides the one in the xinet.d directory. That file only designates the port the daemon will listen on and what user runs the daemon.
I think there is another config file /etc/proftpd.conf. If it's not there, use the "find" command to look for proftpd.conf. You may have to enable system user accounts to make FTP connections. I had that problem with FTP not long ago on a Ubuntu Linux system. But, it doesn't have much to do with the distro, more so the FTP daemon you're using.
Hope that helps.
