[Centos] need help with wu-ftpd

I had no problems with the vsftp instructions on the
RedHat site, starting here:


The section on ftp starts here:


There was one essential point that I did not get from
the manual (I had to find it the hard way): any
directory in your ftp server that you want to be
publicly accessible needs to be "executable" by
everyone ("o" for "others") -- one enters a directory
by "executing" it.  

I recommend vsftp because 1) I assume RedHat had good
reasons for choosing it, and 2) you have RedHat
supporting it.
