Mike, thanks for the reply.  It got me into the right area to get this 
resolved.  I set my /etc/pam.d/ftp file as you suggested but that did 
not fix my problem, although setting the file to this did:

auth    required        pam_unix.so     nullok
account required        pam_unix.so
session required        pam_unix.so

Again, I would still be wondering how to fix if not for your 
assistance....thanks again!
