For startup at boot-time, you should remove the #<disabled># from the
following line in /etc/inetd.conf:
#:STANDARD: These are standard services.
#<disabled>#ftp stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/vsftpd

so that it reads:
ftp stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/vsftpd

If it is not there, simply add it
