logo = link to home? (was RE: [thelist] Red Hat ftp server how-to?)

Thanks, Dave. I think this is what my predecessor (who actually KNEW
something about Linux) was using. I'll be back with questions.

General question for all:
Odd thing about their site, though. I automatically clicked the company
logo, assuming it was a link to their home page. Not true in this case.

Is this a valid assumption in most cases, or is using the logo as a link
home anti-usability or anti-marketing in some way?

Do you have a particular ftp daemon in mind? My only experience is with
ProFTPD, which has fun things like virtual host support and some
bandwidth throttling directives.

The configuration syntax is extremly similar to apache's and you can
find conf examples here http://www.proftpd.org/docs/

Let me know if you want more info or hints.
