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 don't think the *nix distro choice will have nearly as much of an impact as the ftp prog you pick and your ability to config it (and your os, whatever you may choose)
That's probably not what you are wanting to hear, but it's just my opinion.
Originally posted by evy for security reason you should use sftp. It work very good on linux (RedHat) I dont know about bsd
sftp may or may not be needed here. We don't really have enough details, only that it's going to be a heavily loaded server. If it's just going to be a public assess server, then then server just needs to be stable and must survive buffer overflow attacks and such. If the data needs to be protected from prying eyes, then use sftp. Otherwise the overhead is just not worth it.
Its not public ftp. Private and somehow i need to conf it that one account per computer. I mean if I make a account for "Mark" then he can only access the ftp only from his computer not "Matt's" or anobody elses.
