I am running the latest version of Proftpd on FC 2 and the PassivePorts 
directive is working fine for me - but I'm using ports 10200-10210.

You might want to try a lower port range - that might help - otherwise 
check the caps because the file is case sensitive.

Otherwise, I don't have much good advice.
