Default PROFTPD Fatal Error

I was following Step by Step on this WebSite http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_debian_etch To install ISPConfig, When I went to PROFTPD installation like this:
1) apt-get install proftpd ucf

You will be asked a question:
Run proftpd from inetd or standalone?<-- standalone

Then open /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf and change UseIPv6 from on to off; otherwise you'll get a warning like this when you start Proftpd:

- IPv6 getaddrinfo 'server1.example.com' error: Name or service not known

2) vi /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf
UseIPv6 off

3) ln -s /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf /etc/proftpd.conf
When I do this to Restar,
4)/etc/init.d/proftpd restart

I get this Error:

Fatal: unknown configuration directive '[...]' on line 10 of '/etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf'

I went look at line 10 and line 10 is:
UseIPv6 off
It is like this in the tutorial, who knows What I can do about it?

What can I do Please Help me

If so, remove it!
You only need to add UseIPv6 off
