Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

ServerName "FTP server"
ServerIdent on "FTP Server ready."
# Cause every FTP user except adm to be chrooted into their home directory
# Aliasing /etc/security/pam_env.conf into the chroot allows pam_env to
# work at session-end time (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/477120)
DefaultRoot ~ !adm
VRootAlias /etc/security/pam_env.conf etc/security/pam_env.conf
# Use pam to authenticate (default) and be authoritative
AuthOrder mod_auth_pam.c* mod_auth_unix.c
# If you use NIS/YP/LDAP you may need to disable PersistentPasswd
# Don't do reverse DNS lookups (hangs on DNS problems)
# Set the user and group that the server runs as
# To prevent DoS attacks, set the maximum number of child processes
# to 20. If you need to allow more than 20 concurrent connections
# at once, simply increase this value. Note that this ONLY works
# in standalone mode; in inetd mode you should use an inetd server
# that allows you to limit maximum number of processes per service
# (such as xinetd)
# Disable sendfile by default since it breaks displaying the download speeds in
# ftptop and ftpwho
# TLS (http://www.castaglia.org/proftpd/modules/mod_tls.html)
#TLSRenegotiate ctrl 3600 data 512000 required off timeout 300
# Dynamic ban lists (http://www.proftpd.org/docs/contrib/mod_ban.html)
# Enable this with PROFTPD_OPTIONS=-DDYNAMIC_BAN_LISTS in /etc/sysconfig/proftpd
# If the same client reaches the MaxLoginAttempts limit 2 times
# within 10 minutes, automatically add a ban for that client that
# will expire after one hour.
BanOnEvent MaxLoginAttempts 2/00:10:00 01:00:00
# Allow the FTP admin to manually add/remove bans
BanControlsACLs all allow user ftpadm
# Umask 022 is a good standard umask to prevent new dirs and files
# from being group and world writable
# Allow users to overwrite files and change permissions
<Limit ALL SITE_CHMOD>
# A basic anonymous configuration, with an upload directory
# Enable this with PROFTPD_OPTIONS=-DANONYMOUS_FTP in /etc/sysconfig/proftpd

# Cosmetic option to make all files appear to be owned by user "ftp"
DirFakeUser on ftp

# Limit WRITE everywhere in the anonymous chroot
<Limit WRITE SITE_CHMOD>
# An upload directory that allows storing files but not retrieving

# Don't write anonymous accesses to the system wtmp file (good idea!)
# Logging for the anonymous transfers

I even went as far as looking at my new node running the same OS and version in GUI mode, that runs fine but just can't seem to get this to work, does anyone know what else I need to check to make sure this works?
Thank you and I look forward to any replies,
