limit bandwidth usage by vsftpd on fedora7

Hi. I'm a complete Linux newbie. I recently needed to set up an FTP server and figured I'd give Linux a shot. I am running Fedora 7 and vsftpd. The ftp is up and running but I am experiencing network bandwidth issue as a result. I am trying to find the simplest way to restrict how much bandwidth is available for use by all FTP users. Can this somehow be done in vsftpd's config file? If not, what other options are there? Thanks so much!

Okay, i just found a man page online that lists the following config entry:

local_max_rate - The maximum data transfer rate permitted, in bytes per second, for local authenticated users. Default: 0 (unlimited)

The wording that is confusing me is "local authenticated users". If I set this to a non-zero value will it apply to anyone accessing my FTP server? Again, I'm new to Linux, so sorry if this is a dumb question. Thanks!
