Make sure you have your HOME env variabale set, so that inetd picks

ftpd is not ported to support the PDC.
libcrypt-1.3 - ftp://www.lexa.ru/pub/domestic/sos/libcrypt.tgz
and compile it. There will be a crypt.exe.
Now call crypt like this:
crypt <salt> <password>
where salt is an arbitrary string and password is the password you wish to use
with ftpd. This will give you an encrypted password. Here an example:
vzell:/tmp> crypt ksdkslkdsldkiow3sjhfjhkfjhsdf mypassword
Now copy the encrypted password in your /etc/passwd so that it looks like:
From now on ftpd will use mypassword for authentication.
