There is no problem with the ftp configuration. actually root is never allowed to do a ftp login. rather u cant login root using any insecure service over the lan. firstly u have to login using a normal user and then do a su - to switch to root. you can remove the root entry from /etc/securetty if i am not forgetting it to allow root login over the network but thats real insecure. REAL INSECURE!!!! ACHTUNG!!!!

BTW u should have mentioned which ftp server u were using. quite a vague question but the answer was simple.
