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.

No, that was what was so weird maskedman, there weren't . Postfix complained about differences in the alias
files, but I solved that by copying over the /etc/postfix/aliases to /etc/aliases and then
it was happy.
But, as I was looking through here I noticed some other posts
about the secure ftp programs, namely proftpd and vsftpd
and they indicated that in the conf file the anonymous user
must be enabled. Which I don't understand because
I thought that was a bad thing to do. But when I did it and restarted
vsftpd everything is working now including the websites and shorewall.
Yeah, that is weird. If you're careful with anonymous access enabled it's alright. You may wish to configure anonymous logins to be chrooted and download-only (or disable deleting files and resuming uploads). Glad to hear it's working, though.
