cannot FTP using non-root account

Basically, my problem is I cannot ftp to the server from a windows workstation using a non-root account. Please see error below:

Connected to
220 (vsFTPd 2.0.5)
User ( sysman
331 Please specify the password.
500 OOPS: cannot change directory:/home/sysman
500 OOPS: child died
Connection closed by remote host.

Any inputs would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
