Debian FTP server setup questions


I have some questions regarding Debian FTP server setup. 

1) Having installed wu-ftpd, ps shows:

 root      4190     1  0 17:58 ?        00:00:00 ftpd: accepting connections on port 21

The problem is that I noticed that /etc/inetd.conf did not get
changed. but I also don't have a /etc/init.d/ftpd file. So,

How the ftpd get started? Isn't it suppose to be started from inetd?

2) Do I need special setup for anonymous login to work? Mine seems doesn't:

 $ ftp localhost
 Connected to my.host.org.
 220 my.host.org FTP server (Version wu-2.6.2(1) Fri Jul 27 12:19:39 UTC 2007) ready.
 Name (localhost:tong): anonymous
 331 Guest login ok, send your complete e-mail address as password.
 530 Login incorrect.
 Login failed.
 ftp> 221 Goodbye.
