are you going to be making this a public ftp or requiring username and password?? if you are going to be using username and password I would recommend using sftp.. it's another side protocol of SSH and actually runs on the same port (22) as ssh..

FTP is not secure and unencrypted.. sftp makes an encrypted connection...

Also.. yu might want to think about getting a new distro.. red hat 9 is no longer supported.. either go with fedora for new technology.. or buy red hat professiona workstation from best buy...

or go with a different name.. SuSE is great... Slackware is great... FreeBSD is great..

awesome..congratulations.. I assume you're using FileZilla with windows.. that's cool.. another one i really like SecureFX.. it's got better directory travering and drag&drop support.. get it here It says that you need to pay for it.. but I downloaded it for free after filling out some info.. and as far as I know.. it's not a trial version.. but maybe it is.. either way.. it's definitely worth checking out.. and if you're going to pay for one.. I'd go with CuteFTP Pro.
