@ERROR: chroot failed

Three things:
   Does the system support chroot?
   Is the rsyncd running as root?
   Is the path correctly specified in the rsyncd.conf?
I can't think of anything else I've run into or read of, to cause that problem.
If it's not number three, try running it as root.  If that fails, try adding
use chroot = no
to your rsyncd.conf.

Subject:  @ERROR: chroot failed

Why would I be getting this on a box? I have the same permissions on
many other directories. Using verbose mode shows nothing more then the
error in the Subject line.

Any help is appreciated.
