All that file is for is to start up vsftpd when the machine starts - you 
don't need to change it.  All you need to change is the 
/etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf for your own environment.  You can then start/stop 
the daemon manually with these commands (as root):

/etc/rc.d/init.d/vsftpd start
/etc/rc.d/init.d/vsftpd stop

If you want to start up vsftpd when the machine starts, just run 
/usr/sbin/ntsysv and scroll down to the vsftpd entry.  Hit the spacebar to 
select it for auto-start, then click "OK".  The daemon will be started at 
next reboot.
