After I Installed shadow passwd, on Linux, I was unable to login from a remot (or localhost) ftp session. After entering the password, It returned  a Login Incorrect. I upgraded the wu-ftpd-2.4-fixed  ftpd program and followed the how-to.
Also the paths got messed up. shutdown, or init commands do not work from root / #.
Regular logins and telnet logins work fine.
I hope this is enough info.
Thanks!

Check out /etc/login.defs
There are two lines that define the path to be used for root and other users.

First of all, you have to recompile wu.ftpd to use shadow passwords. You have to add -DSHADOW in the CFLAGS field and -lshadow on the LFLAGS field in the  Makefile (it's there in the documentation). as for the rest, edit /etc/login.defs. It's pretty  self explaining.
