type ps -ef | grep ftpd

if you get output (not including the line that says grep ftpd) then your server is already running, if its not running, do the following:

edit /etc/inetd.conf and uncomment the # infront of the ftpd line

then type ps -ef | grep inetd

take the second number for the inetd process and type: kill -HUP <second number>

this will start your ftp server. you may also need to edit /etc/ftpusers (users included in this file cannot access ftp) /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny. type man hosts.allow and man ftpusers for more info.

setting up an ftp server for yellowdog is the same as it is for redhat on an i386 so you should be able to find more then enough info.
