Starting vsftpd on RH 2.1 AS

Read many posts for configuring vsftpd 1.2.1 and have questions re: starting and stopping.

First, I'm running RedHat 2.1 AS and vsftpd 1.2.1

Reviewing the URL I found good info, but wonder, how do I start the ftp server? The reason, when I attempt ftp hostname I receive a connection refused message.

Still trying to get vsftpd running.

When I run nmap -v I don't see ftp listed meaning the port's not listening.

Now, the question, how do I start vsftpd? The file, /usr/local/vsftpd-1.2.1/xinetd.d/vsftpd contains the following lines:

Any suggestions? I thought of disabling the firewall, but not certain how so I can verify the port's not blocked.

I'm kinda new to Linux and lost at the moment. Read many posts, but no resolution.
