You don't actually need to speak's the fix

That French website offers a method of setting up the directory structure, same as the OP here. The reason the French solution works under Jaguar but not this is because it has you download an old version of the ftpd and use it to replace the Jaguar version.

1) Download the file from their server

2) After it's unstuffed, go back into your terminal. Do

% sudo mv /usr/libexec/ftpd /usr/libexec/ftpd.old
(this will make a backup of your old ftp daemon, which probably isn't a bad idea. If you do screw up, you can just use the mv command to rename the ftpd.old to ftpd and you'll be back to the initial setup). Enter your password if prompted.

3) Move the new file to that directory. Type

% sudo mv
with a trailing space. Then drag the expanded file onto the Terminal. This will copy the path to that file. Type a space on that same line, then type
Hit return.

4) Now you need to restart the FTP server to make it use the new server program. Go to System Preferences:Sharing, and uncheck the "FTP Access" box. Once it's shut down (you'll see feedback on the right side of the pane), recheck it.

Worked for me, hope it works for you.
