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.

I have been successful in getting vsftpd to run on my Redhat 9 box, but I still have not even a clue as to how I should go about setting up users.
As of right now, I try to access the box as a guest (no user/pass) and it gives me a read-only view of EVERYTHING on the box. NOT what I'm wanting. So first, how do I fix this, heh.
Second, When I log in as myself (valid user on the box itself) or root, I get an error saying that the proxy is blocking me from changing any data on the box and that I would not be able to do anything until I got this resolved. This is, as you might imagine, a problem. I have not touched anything, except added my username to the user's list file. I touched nothing in the vsftpd.conf file.
Does anyone know what I can do about this "proxy" error and how I can restrict everyone in the world from looking at my files?
Thank you sooo much for any assistance. I've tried for a while to get this figured out on my own as I am one of those types of people, but this is getting ridiculous.
Well, if you're one of those people who like to tinker, then you'll lile reading /usr/share/doc/vsftp.* Vsftp comes with some good examples as well (they're in the contrib or examples dir, can't remember). If you're weary of tinkering, the first one, you need to chroot people's accounts to a home (look at the explanation of the chroot options). The second one, what proxy? Did you try PASV mode?
I touched nothing in the vsftpd.conf file.
You should, by all means...
