	Well with 2 tries I got vsftpd to load after a boot and it works 
fine when I call it with 'ftp localhost' from my linux, but I still 
can't get it to work from windows, so I think a firewall problem exists 
now. But will tackle that after lunch. I think there is some 
documentation on the Linux firewall. Will read that.
