Well, I'm using PureFTPD and it works great.

You should definitely take a look at it

- All accounts can be easily chrooted by default

- FTP accounts can be distinct from system accounts, stored in an independant database.

- Bandwidth throttling is supported,

- Every user can be allowed to connect only from a specific range on IP address

- The pure-ftpwho command provides real-time reports of who's doing what on the FTP server, including bandwidth usage.

And much much more ........
