Easy FTP?

Hey, incredibly newbie question:

Is there an easy way to set up FTP service in mandrake 9.1? I can't find any step-by-steps isn't an issue...I just need to get data from one computer to another.

If you aren't concerned with security, then you should be able to simply install ftpd. If it's installed from RPM, it'll probably automatically start running and offering services; if not, you may need to start it with something like:

service ftpd start
