From what I know United linux is based on SuSE (actually SUSE, Turbolinux, Conectiva and SCO) and from what I know a dead project. IMO you would be better upgrading to SuSE since it would contain support for new hardware and the latest security updates. As a side warning using a ftp server on the internet can be a security risk.

I would guess that united would be a similar to SuSE but I don't know if united used yast or something similar. FTP servers are typically run via inetd and I would guess that the ftp server installed is probably proftp. Edit the files in /etc/inetd.d so that the ftp server will run by setting disable = no.
The command to start inetd would be:
/etc/init.d/inetd start
