Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Well make sure you have a permission setting of this:
This would allow to give the owner full access and all other users just read and execute access. To give those type of permissions, you would type this:
chmod 755 /filename
To change the ownership of that particular directory for a user, then you would use the chown command like this:
chown user /filename
I'm not totally familar with wu-ftpd, if you need any documentation in setting up anything with that, maybe someone else here might know or you can probably check out their site for online doc's, but if you can login and its up and running, those permission settings should get you going.
Under 'internet options' you should be able to setup default usernames and passwords and then hopefully drag and droping should work. I doubt it, though. IE is not the best of ftp download clients, so I wouldn't have thought it'd be a particularly good upload one, if at all. I think there's another MS product that'll allow you to upload stuff... be buggared if I can remember what it is though, sorry. There are plenty of Windows ftp clients (for both up and downloads), so IIWY I would take a skooch over to freshmeat or somewhere and download one. I could suggest a very awkward workaround, but it is quite awkward.
Actually from IE, if you have the correct permissions, in your browser if you type this:
ftp://ipaddress or if you have a domain name, you can use that instead of the ip address of your ftp server.
And if you have that user setup, in IE it should prompt for a user name and password if you don't have anonymous login enabled. That's where you would of course use your login and password setup for that machine.
You can check out mine, but I have anonymous login enabled so it won't ask for a username or password, but the permissions are only for download, anonymous users can't upload to it.
