Hi. Are you trying to install vsftpd? If so then all you can use up2date to do that.

Is it wanting the conf in /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf instead of just in /etc?

Perhaps. You can also pass the '-f' flag which tells it where the config file is.

If you are typing in something like "vsftpd start"

instead try

"nohup vsftpd >/tmp/vsftpd.out 2>&1 &"

ie - miss out the word "start"..
