FTP server setup



Hi all, as the thread category will probably indicate I'm fairly new to using Linux so bare with me as I jump into this strange new world and end up asking a lot of simple questions (though hopefully not so simple as to make me look too stupid).

Three questions for now.

1.)
I am trying to setup a FTP server in Red Hat 8.0 using the default vsftpd server but I need to know if there is a way to configure a default group to all uploaded files? so all files that are uploaded will belong to group "admnaccess" even though the user uploading the file does not belong to that group. Can I do this with vsftpd or do I need to move over to proftpd?

2.)
The system I have installed Red Hat 8.0 on has two integrated network adapters but only one is being used. How can I disable eth1?

3.)
While I am currently using Red Hat do to ease of install and use I am wondering if it would ultimately be to my benefit to use Slackware. What are the major differences between the two and how do the you guys feel about he two distros?

2) in the directory /etc/sysconfig/network-devices/ there will be a file called ifconfig.eth1 open that up and put "ONBOOT=no"

3) I can't go too deep into details about the differences, because I have only limited experience with the two...

Redhat isn't that secure, and in my opinion it is easier to work on a system like slack, because it is more broken down into the various parts of the o.s..... rather than just having the whole thing at once, you can put just an ftp server on there and configure it how you want..

There are probably a lot of threads about that around here, and elsewhere, just search around.

A system is as secure as YOU (= the admin) makes it. This isn't depending on the distribution itself ...

Thanks Adma_Boz. i found the file and it did the trick. I am looking to setup Slackware as a workstation to screw around on so I should get a good feel for both if all goes well.
