linux ftp server

Hi every1,

My ftp server is currently working on winNT 4. I wanted to replace the OS to some linux distro because of, hmm, instabilities. I've installed SUSE linux and I'm in need of a good ftp server programs.
I know most distros comes with a ftp dameon. But (as far as i know) the ftp users should be system users as well, and this isn't what I want. I want the ftp user list to be seperate from the system user list.

Can anyone suggest a ftp server daemon with that feature?

but it doesn't work.
Can anyone direct me to a tutorial for proftpd with virtual users?
