select Main Menu -> System Settings -> Add or Remove Applications. In the list displayed, if you see that FTP Server is checked, then that means that FTP is already installed in ur system. if it is not checked, just check it and then click on the update button. u will be asked for the installation cds again. once the installation of ftp server is complete, all that u need to do is to run the command :-

service vsftpd start

If u want that this service should start at boot time itself, just issue the command :-

chkconfig vsftpd on

that is all there is to it. after that u can sit on any client and type the command :-

ftp <ip number of the ftp server>

Hope this helps
