I recently installed vsftpd on a Centos 6.2 server.
When attempting to access it via filezilla, I get 530 Permission denied.
I've disabled the firewall and selinux.
I've uncommented chroot_list_enable=YES in vsftpd.conf
I've tried normal users and root. I've added the normal user to the ftp group
What is a good approach to troubleshoot?

Don't know what I did, but got it working. I really need to better understand Linux!

Still need of some help.
The only way I can get vsftpd to work is disable the firewall.

Rather than disable the firewall, have you checked iptables to see if port 22 (or whatever port you're using) is open ? You'll be looking for a line similar to:
Remember and restart iptables after any changes.
-A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT

thanks, I'll give that a try.
I am totally new to this, but found the following with appears to be good. If there is a better tutorial, please let me know.

Fedora has a tool named setup you can run from a command line to run a network and firewall configuration setup tool.
If your computer has a gui the gui firewall configuration is easier to use than directly manipulating iptables.
