Running vsftpd standalone vs inetd

Is it better to run vsftpd standalone or using inetd?  A friend of
mine told me that it's more secure to do it standalone, and apparently
that's the recommended method now.

If that's the case, how do I go about getting vsftpd to run when the
machine boots up?  It doesn't look like there's a vsftpd_enable that I
can use, like I can with other services.
