proftpd permissions msec

i run mandrake 9.1, i've gotten proftpd running fine... accounts all setup and everything. except it was only letting the owner get in, so then i changed that so everyone can access it and it was fine... except i noticed about a half hour later it had reverted back to normal. the permissions had been reset. so i researched it a little on this website and i guess msec is doing this, and it suggested to move it to like /var/stuff or something like that... i tried that but then i realized that the contents i had on the ftp were about 8 gigs and for some reason / only allows like 5 something. and i need way more than that. so how can i disable cron hourly from doing msec? or turn off cron hourly all together? or how can i allow / to use more space?

this is a major problem because only one user can login to the ftp, the owner. which is no good. thanks in advance.

Option 1: Remove msec from /etc/cron.hourly.
Option 2: Set the permissions of ftp directory using Mandrake Control Center.
