depends on if you want anonymous only, anonymous+chroot+normal users...
I personnaly set one box with anonymous, chrooted users and normal users with wu.ftpd (you have to tune the ftpaccess file, chrooted belong to user group you defined for them, anonymous require inserting a "." in the the homedir path in the /etc/passwd file for user ftp).
See wu.ftpd manual for more detailed options.

Thanks for the info.  The problem is that I'm relatively new to Linux and I'm trying to setup a box that allows users to upload files to their home directories.  These users should not be able to see any other directories other than their home directories.  I realize I need to use chroot to this but I'm not sure exactly how.  Any tips?  

Also where is the wu.ftp manual?
