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.

hello all. i am fairly new to linux and have just finished getting proftpd set up on my rh9 machine, and am trying to get anonymous going. I have defined a home directory for the user 'ftp' and set
'chmod 750 /home/ftp' (the anon. directory). My /etc/proftpd.conf has anonymous access like this:
My problem is that i get this:
Connected to localhost (127.0.0.1).
220 ProFTPD 1.2.9 Server (ProFTPD Default Installation) [athome]
Name (localhost:root): anonymous
331 Anonymous login ok, send your complete email address as your password.
530-Unable to set anonymous privileges.
530 Login incorrect.
Remote system type is UNIX.
Using binary mode to transfer files.
Maybe the 'user' ftp is not in the 'group' ftp? i believe i can check this buy reading my passwd file, but it gives me a number rather than a name, an i cant decipher it hehe!
As you can probably tell, i have much learning to do, and any help would be greatly apprieciated.
# To prevent DoS attacks, set the maximum number of child processes
# to 30. If you need to allow more than 30 concurrent connections
# at once, simply increase this value. Note that this ONLY works
# in standalone mode, in inetd mode you should use an inetd server
# that allows you to limit maximum number of processes per service
# (such as xinetd).
# Set the user and group under which the server will run.
# To cause every FTP user to be "jailed" (chrooted) into their home
# directory, uncomment this line.
# Normally, we want files to be overwriteable.
# A basic anonymous configuration, no upload directories. If you do not
# want anonymous users, simply delete this entire <Anonymous> section.
# We want clients to be able to login with "anonymous" as well as "ftp"
UserAlias anonymous ftp
# Limit the maximum number of anonymous logins
# We want 'welcome.msg' displayed at login, and '.message' displayed
# in each newly chdired directory.
# Limit WRITE everywhere in the anonymous chroot
