i had the same problem,
i had redhat 7
i even couldnt find ftp daemon listed in the "ntsysv"
tht means ( i guess, i am not pro at linux) the server was not installed.
i then put in my cd and installed wu-ftp*.rpm manually, copied the sample comfiguration files to the etc dircetory (from the /usr/share/doc/wu*/examples) and started the sevice, now the ftp is working. you have to modifyu the ftpusers files and remove names of the user which you WANT to GIVE access though
