Or you can do it the Redhat way,

rpm -qa |grep ftp	# list installed packages with ftp in the name

list output, you should have at least wu-ftpd and anonftp. in your case
you probably do not have anonftp installed. install this and it will 
set up your /home/ftp tree.

from the /mnt/cdrom/Redhat/RPMS tree

ls -al |grep ftp	#list rpm packages with ftp in the name
rpm -i anonftp-2.8-1.i386.rpm	#install rpm package

You should now have you /home/ftp tree. You should also check out
for security issues regarding wu-ftpd.
