The documentation on it is great, and it's very easy to setup and configure.

Something to at least give you a heads up, for the most part, you will be running an ftp server from command line, not a gui that some are used to in win.

Cool

Actually it's probably already on your RH CD's, but here's a link:
http://rpmfind.net/linux/freshrpms/r...7-fr2.i386.rpm

Not sure what the fr2 is...

Cool
