Sorry for the top post but it's a quick one:

I wrote this tutorial a while back and you should be able to use it. If you
don't want log ins, just start up the PureFTP and then in the directory
/home/ftp I think it is, load what you need that you have to install with
in there, and really, my first time setting up annonymous FTP I did it in
10 minutes. That tutorial should give you the basics to get the thing
