It would probably be easier to install vsftpd instead of wu-ftpd.  Do
you have a reason to use wu-ftpd over vsftpd?

vsftpd is the default ftp server for RHEL3 (and therefore clones, like
Cenots) and it is included on your CD or via the mirrors:


So, if it isn't already installed, you can just run

# yum install vsftpd

and you will get vsftpd installed.  Then, you will need to configure
it and such, but that's another topic.
