I've never managed to make the login of any user work, but I can tell
You why there's no ls working for the anonymous account: It's all
because the "chroot" isn't implemented. If You put ls.exe into /bin it
will work! Futhermore ftpd searches most of it's configuration files
from /usr/local/etc instead of /etc.
