Very hard to understand your question, please try to write clearly.

From what I'm guessing, you need a setup guide for LDAP. Google has lots, like this one:
http://tldp.org/HOWTO/LDAP-HOWTO/

which will walk you through how to set up an LDAP server. As far as vsftpd authenticating via LDAP, you have to first download the source for vsftpd, and compile it with the LDAP options enabled. After that, again, follow one of the many guides you can find via Google:
http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-HOWTO...ion-HOWTO.html

The docs and source are here:
ftp://vsftpd.beasts.org/users/cevans.../vsftpd-2.2.2/
