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 need to set up an ftp site to allow various users to read, write and delete files and directories. Basically it is a big file sharing area. (legal uses... we own the copyright of the files...)
The users are using a variety of platforms, so ftp and web-browser access has been chosen. We've got the firewall only allowing access from certain IPs and users at those IPs log in as anonymous. That part works fine.
I've got vsftpd installed and running on an FC3 computer. I've got permissions problems with several of the operations, such as uploading a file or folder, deleting files and rewriting files.
I'm confused about the permissions and settings that should be used with vsftp. Who/what should the owner and permission of the "pub" directory ? What user and permission does an anonymous user have ? What group does it belong to ?
You could Chmod the directory, "PUB"
chgrp ftp pub
(/\ /\ changes group associated w/ the ftp directory)
chmod -R u=rwx, o-rwx, pub
(/\ /\ Change the read, write, and execute files permissions)
and you create users using the command:
useradd -m -d /home/bradr
(change the bradr to whatever you want as the user name and whatever for the password)
then, enable local user logins in here, if your doing this over a local network
the line should be somthing like: local_enable=YES
if its set to no, and if it has a # before it, change those.
if you have any more questrions, or i wasnt clear enough, go ahead and post back here, ill check back, thanks
