Actually, I have never claimed it as mine. I collected it from the
DeliLinux distro before it turned into a Debian-based distro. I thought

There IS a website for pure-ftp, you can Google for it or go directly
Documentation is also there (for the latest, I have no doubt). :)

I don't think so - that is what "anonymous" means.

Anonymous ftp means that anyone can log into it but can only access
the /home/ftp directory and any subdirectories.
Is this in one of the BL distros, or one you are building yourself ?
