I apologize for the delay in posting a summary, but I had to test things 
out, and as luck would have it convince the business side of the house to 
allow me to install a third party ftpd package.

Thanks to all who replied (too numerous to list individually), the vast 
majority of people said the only way to go was either wuftpd or proftpd. I 
ended up going with wu-ftpd, my set up isn't complete yet, but everything 
appears to be going great so far.

Thanks again to all who responded.

I have to set up an FTP server that some "not-so-trusted" users will be 
accessing. It will not be using anonymous logins. Any recommendations on the 
best way to secure the FTP environment. I am basically, looking at trying to 
restrict the users to a particular file system, and limiting command access. 
And I am stuck with the OS' FTP, I cannot install another version. Any ideas 
would be appreciated.
