Configuring wu-ftpd for ftp user login

I am having trouble configuring wu-ftpd on my system to allow a real user to login. I am not sure where to start. I'll try to give as much information as possible.

Here is a log of what happened.
ftp> open
Connected to
220 FTP server (Version wu-2.6.1-24) ready.
530 Please login with USER and PASS.
530 Please login with USER and PASS.
KERBEROS_V4 rejected as an authentication type
Name ( ftp
331 Guest login ok, send your complete e-mail address as password.
530 Login incorrect.
Login failed.

The user and password are correct as I can login using telnet.

I am using Linux 2.4.9-e.65smp.

Here is a copy of /etc/ftpusers.

# The ftpusers file is deprecated. Use deny-uid/deny-gid in ftpaccess.

Here is a copy of /etc/ftpaccess.

deny-uid %-99 %65534-
deny-gid %-99 %65534-

I'm not sure what other information would be helpful, but this is everything that I can think of that could be useful.
