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.

My RH9 setup is installed and I was posting my web-pages from within Dreamweaver using its ftp client OK.
Yesterday I loaded Webmin. Now I cannot connect using the ftp client to my /var/www/html directory as I could before webmin was loaded. (I like webmin for sorting mySQL databases albeit a learner).
I can ftp connect to the /home/user and it shows as "/". Trying to connect elsewhere gives me error 550. How can I allow my ftp access to run to any chosen directory please? I cannot see the solution; I bet it is easy but man oh man....
By the way, I have established that proFTP is the running daemon and have shut down vsftpd. So I guess my question now is how do I configure the daemon to allow a user to ftp to selectable directories (as it seemed to allow with vsftpd)?
