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.

Since I couldn't get proftpd running (a problem with compiling on 2.6.24, as I've googled), I've tried installing vsftpd according to the howto on opensuse.org. After I start xinetd and I try to do ftp localhost I get this, while logging on as anonymous:
And when I'm trying to log in as a normal system user I get this:
Connected to localhost.
220 (vsFTPd 2.0.5)
Name (localhost:lordmorgul): ftp
331 Please specify the password.
230 Login successful.
EPSV/EPRT on IPv4 off.
421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection.
I've got no idea what to do with it. Help, please, I need it running before tuesday...
Oh, well, never mind, I managed to install a new snapshot of proftpd from source. Though I'm also having problems with it... I can log in from the console, but not from my browser - when I type ftp://localhost in the address bar it gives me 404, same goes for external connections - even though noip and port forwarding are ok.
OK, so vsftpd is working, but only if... I don't have a /etc/vsftpd.conf. So I can't change any settings. That is so weird. And by mistake i edited the /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf, so I don't even have the default file. Does anyone know, where does it read the current configuration from?
OK, I got it working somehow, I've improvised creating a new /etc/vsftpd.conf. But even though I've put local_enable=YES, I can't log in as a local user. After typing the password the server replies 530 Login incorrect.. Any ideas?
