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 had that problem when i made a new account after my own oringinal one..the oringinal one i made worked, but i couldn't connect with my external ip only 127.0.0.1....as of groupadd and stuff like that, you have to specify the whole path...for example if i issue the command groupadd from prompt it says command not found, but when you do a whereis groupadd it shows (on my machine) that it is located in /usr/sbin/groupadd...so if you wanted to actually do that, just specify the full path..
thx, even after trying all of that, its still a no go.
Im going to abandon this and try and create an apache ftp over http style affair, plus i believe i can configure it to use https as well, which is more useful to me. But all i really wanted it for was to allow a friend to download a demo off me, since i have port probs with irc and such.
If u want an easier solution, forget ftp and install apache web server instead, i did it this morning from source and it took about 1hr, but it now works and i downloaded a 1mb file via a proxy and it works a treat.
Be-aware tho the instructions are even nerdier than the vsftp ones.
but basics are:
from folder un untarred to:
then read the manual and edit a conf file and away u go, basic webserver up, just enable it in ur firewall settings and ur online.
