You need to install the appropriate Debian packages. It looks like you
haven't done this yet. The packages are called nfs-server (or
nfs-kernel-server if you prefer to use the kernel-space one - probably the
user-space one (nfs-server) is easier) and there are several FTP servers,
for instance wu-ftpd and proftpd.

Install them from dselect, or, if you have apt set up properly, run

apt-get install nfs-server proftpd

(e.g. if you want proftpd).

Hope that helps... good luck anyway.
