Unhappy Proftpd install issue

I just downloaded the Proftpd rpm for my redhat 8.0 and installed it.

where are the proftpd files located and where is the .conf file.

After installing it i tried to ftp localhost but all i got was "connection refused"

any help would be great.

make sure /etc/xinetd.conf has ftp enabled and if you use inetd.conf make sure it is enabled there and points to proftpd.
P.S. and then you must restart xinetd or inetd use this
/etc/rc.d/init.d/xinetd reload
kill -SIGUSR1 `cat /var/run/`
in the case of inetd
kill -1 `cat /var/run/`
