If you plan on using proftpd which I suggest then check out http://www.proftpd.org/ and their documentation on how to install.

You should have proftpd packages on your installation cds, so
urpmi proftpd
The configuration is working from the beginning, but you probably need to tweak it to fit your needs.

The FTP server is probably just an RPM package. Mount your CD, cd to /mnt/cdrom (or wherever you mounted the drive), then (if necessary) cd to whatever directory on the CD has the RPM then do:

rpm -ivh <name of RPM file>

In general, to set up an FTP server, install the RPM that came with your distro (probably proftpd as Mara said) and then modify the configuration with whatever changes you need.

You did it correctly, but the package needs others to work. Urpmi hides this and handles dependencies for you, with manual installation you need to install package after package. You'd need packages perl and openssl.
