FTP : Oh dear, I am lost :)

I guess I installed now almost every FTP Server which is existing on the planat on my Debian box... I am just too stupid.

So far people suggested vsftpd and proftpd but even readin every line from the manual, I just don't get it running.

Someone told me that this, what I want, is not even possible:

Lets say I have a folder


which should be accessible by anonymous (read only of course)

In addition to that, I need several user with full access to the same folder.

No someone told me that this is not possible as ever user (also anonymous) has it;s own homefolder etc...

Well, that would be my first question, and 2nd :

is there a REALLY good step by step guide to accomplish that ?

I mean for some stupid like me, including download, configuration, tweaking etc . ???

Thanks guys
