On Debian GNU/Linux Lenny and on Squeeze the command:
aptitude search webmin give to me no results.
One can download webmin debian package from here:
Why isn't it in the Debian repository?
Is it safe to install it from there?
I have tried gforge-ftp-proftpd; I have installed it on my server box
but then I don't know how to use it?

I have installed it on Lenny with command:
'sudo aptitude install proftpd' so I think it is unaffected because I
trust to Debian maintainers that Debian is the most secure operating
