    I installed vsftpd from the Fedora disc, and I've been trying to get 
it to work. Attempting to connect with gFTP, but I get this error.

Looking up
Connected to
500 OOPS: vsftpd: cannot locate user specified in 'ftp_username':ftp
Disconnecting from site
Waiting 30 seconds until trying to connect again

I've been playing with the config, and I've tried diferent accounts, but 
I can't get it to work. I searched google, but it only came up with one 
result, and it wasn't too helpful. I have it running as a xinetd service.

Any pointers would be appriciated!
