Maybe  you're trying to do something more complicated than I am, but I have 
ftpchroot  working. My /etc/ftpchroot file just consists of a list of 
usernames, one per line. This effectively restricts the ftp user to his/her 
home directory on the server (the home directory, of course, is owned by the 
user in question).  On your system does the user own the directory you are 
trying to ftpchroot him in? Perhaps that is a requirement...
