	I will look through my cd's for it. It isn't loaded for sure 
now. I found from Google kcmpureftpd-0.9.1.tar.gz and first got the rmp 
files but they will not load due to a library missing. So I compiled it 
and it worked fine but this is from a few good progamers who don't write 
in english. I installed this and it disappeared. I have no idea where it 
went but will look. I guess pureftp is supposed to be much easier too.
