I am looking to do some configuration stuff that will let me limit different user accounts to different transfer rates...
for example:   User: bob   has RateReadBPS 400000 while user: dan has a RateReadBPS of 20000
If this is possible please hit me back

Of course it's possible. It's Linux. Now how I do know that ProFTPD has ability to limit certain groups to a specific bps, I'm not sure if it actually goes into group groups. You can allow anonymous users X-bps while authenticated users get whatever they can snag, etc, or you can set it up so users period get X-bps. What I have said is covered in the documentation, after you re-compile the code, but as for specific users being limited to certain speeds...I think you'll have to make groups and add alittle bit of code telling what they're able to do etc. So scripting may be in your near future.

Alas, I'm a network tech and not a programmer. Perhaps you could try posting on the forum of ProFTPD(do they have one?) or reading any updated documentation. Other than that I'm not sure how to do it.
