Default ProFTP & SuSe 10

I ran the SuSe10 HowTo, made the init.d/proftpd file, then copied my proftpd.conf from my FC4 machine to the SuSe machine. A restart got
server1:~ #  - Fatal: unknown configuration directive 'AuthPAMConfig' on line 16 of '/etc/proftpd.conf'.
I commented the 2 PAM lines out and the restart went well. I then went to my NAT and reset the Vserver from the FC4 machine IP to the SuSe10 machine IP. Can't connect to the ftp site from the web.

I searched around for some possible answers first... I saw that I would probably need log files but I could not find any in /var/log ! Here is my conf though...
# This is the ProFTPD configuration file
