    ps wont show the process coz its started by xinetd. Try

    netstat -a
    netstat -a |grep ftp
    >How can I check to see if xinetd is starting vsftpd ...
    See above and/or 'telnet 127.0.0.1 21'. It should ideally connect.

    Edit /etc/xinetd.d/vsftpd to say 'disable = no' if it's yes and restart
    xinetd by '/etc/init.d/xinetd restart'

    So simple! Missed that after finding the vsftpd file and moving into
    the xinetd.d directory. Like most things with Linux, it is simple *and*
    a text editor does the job. It is just a matter of learning how the
    "simple" peieces fit together!

    Many thanks....

    "ftp localhost"?

    Also, "/sbin/chkconfig --list" to give you the full list of enabled and
    disabled services?
