The 5.2 RC2 /stand/sysinstall post install
 config/networking/anonymous FTP server builder is out of date.
The bin and pub directores are nolonger necessary since 4.4.
upload/ download directory should be built just like any other 
user home directory. /etc/ftpchroot file should be auto built 
with anonymous listed as one of the user ID's to chroot.
The -r and -S flag should be added to FTP statment in /etc/inetd.conf file.
Turn on Quotas for all /usr/home and preset to some reasonable small size so
the anonymous directory can not cause the system problems by warez script 
kikkies using it as public dumping grounds. 	
	try it your self
rework sysinstall anonymous install option
