Hard to say, really, and there is no dbase for Linux,
there's only some opensource xbase toolkits.

Can you explain what you're trying to achieve?

I am trying to create virtual users as listed in the , so I can disable system users from logging into the ftp.

Thank in advance
(instructions listed below are for creating virutal user in debian).......

"creating virtual users (PAM)

Before being able to login, we need to create a valid user. Depending on the PAM authentification backend this steps could vary. For instance when using a database as authentification backend you would require addind that user to the specified table.

If you would like to follow from the above PAM sample configuration, you will need the db_load program for creating the file in common database format. When using Debian just apt-get install libdb3-util. Afterwards you need to create a file which contains the login and on the next line the password:
sample accounts.tmp (for building accounts.db)

After creating the accounts.tmp, which is just a list of usernames and passwords, you need to build the database with db3_load -T -t hash -f accounts.tmp /etc/vsftpd/accounts.db. Afterwards you can erase your accounts.tmp since it is no longer required - until you upgrade your username/password database. You should now set pretty restrictive permissions to the database: chmod 600 /etc/vsftpd/accounts.db"
