Giving someone FTP-access

I wanted to give a friend of mine FTP-access to my Linux-box (FC3).

I don't want him to be able to log in using SSH or the GDM Greeter. I just want him to be able to log in via FTP and nothing else.
At least i don't want him to be listed in the GDM Greeter.

Is it possible to do that?

You can create an account for him but use a "/sbin/nologin" as his shell! Or you can "turn" an anonymous on. Then no need to create any account for him at all...
