hi, love the site, but let me get down to buisness.

basicly, i have a linux box on my network (that has no access to the net), and i use it as a test box for php scripts, and the like, ok, so, what i want to do, is set up ftp so i can simply login and be able to modify everything under /var/www/html/, i've tried by using lots of how-to's and guides and such, but havent been able for it to work properly sad.gif

you can NOT login as root to an ftp server...
you have to be a regular user
why do you want to login as root to an ftp server for?

create another regular user correctly
