Hello,
I need advise on setting up ftp on a new red hat linux server. I have absolutely no experience using red hat or any unix for that matter so im completely new at this. I need to know how to set it up using telnet from the root directory or anyway using telnet. The server is in singapoor so i have no direct access to it besides telnet.

Linux won't let you telnet directly in using the root account, unless all of the security on remote access has been disabled, which you really don't want to do. You can telnet in as an ordinary user and su to root and do everything that way.

The first thing to do is to see if ftp has been installed with "rpm -q wu-ftp". If it hasn't you'll need to download  wu-ftpd-2.5.0-9.i386.rpm (unless there's some one at the site to stick the OS CD in the drive_. Use a command line ftp to: ftp.redhat.com or or one of the mirrors that are closer. Install with "rpm -i wu-ftp-2.5.0-9.i386.rpm" and you should be good-to-go. Any one with a user account on the system should be able to use ftp.

By visible to the web, do you mean that you have some directory in your htdocs area the contains files and you want visitors to the site to see a directory listing in their browser? The web server typically has the directives in its config file to enable the generation of a directory listing automatically if the URL points to a directory within the htdocs area. It will do so if that directory doesn't contain an index.html file.
