Couple of things to check...
1. Does /usr/libexec/ftpd exist
2. Is there anything listening on port 21
(netstat -an | grep LISTEN | grep 21)
3. Check the contents of /var/log/messages
Hope that helps...
A good sysadmin always carries around a few feet of

backhoe operator for directions - Bill Bradford
