I've worked with Vsftpd in the past and found it very easy to setup and
manage (only one config file) but people tend to prefer ProFTPD for multi-
host sites (maybe is more complete or has more features, I dunno :-?).

If you need a GUI for user handling, webmin could be an option, as it
provides modules for "proftpd" (and "vsftp", IIRC) as well as other FTP

P.S. There was a recently exploit in ProFTPD package, if you are thinking
in installing, just ensure you get an unaffected package.

I'll second vsftpd (as well as proftpd) for ease of use. I didn't know about the proftpd exploit though (I don't use ftp anymore so might have skimmed over it). That said, if it's personal or your users are nice enough i'd recommend ssh / scp. Otherwise, i'd setup a webui for transferring data over ssl/tls. Remember, there is nothing secure about ftp.
