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.

How do I set up anonymous access using proftpd so that anyone can log in and see the directory /home/ftp/files/Anonymous, with the username anonymous and any email address for a password?
I tried the section below, but that would not work.
UserAlias anonymous ftp
RequireValidShell off #I personally think its safer for user ftp to have no shell, hence this directive
AllowOverwrite off #If they up it, you have a right to see it before they whack it
PathAllowFilter "^[-A-Za-z0-9._+]*$" #Only allow matches to this regexp for uploads
PathDenyFilter "(^|/)[-.]" #This restricts lame leading characters on uploads that
#might otherwise be permitted by the ruleset above
AllowFilter "^[a-zA-Z0-9 .,/_+\-]*$" #Only allow COMMANDS matching this regexp
