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.

Newbie with a Proftpd question, here is the scenario:
I am trying to set up a FTP server, using Proftpd 1.2.9, with anonymous access. I currently have been successful getting anonymous access working. But, I would like to apply certain levels to security to areas that anonymous users can access. For example.
Anonymous user home directory is something like /ftp/pub
But, there are some subfolders that I want anonymous users to be able to see, but when they cd to them, the folder will require a password to continue on.
Basically what I am doing, there are certain files that are free to anyone who wants them and there are other files that are only to be made available to certain people. What I am trying to accomplish is a form of authentication, but being done at the subdirectory level.
To summarize, I want ALL users of the FTP to login as anonymous, see ALL folders in the anonymous home directory, but have some folders protected with passwords/login. Is this possible with Proftpd, or possible some editing of .ftpaccess config file in these particular folders?
