Question proftpd not working on fresh ispconfig/debian install

I got an unmanaged VPS last week and before that I was completely new to Linux. I set it up with CentOS and I started to get used to that, but wanted ISPConfig installed and the recommended OS was Debian, and seen as I have no ties to CentOS I decided to switch.

I used the VPS Control Panel that I got with the VPS to reinstall the OS to Debian 5.0, and followed the Perfect Server with BIND and Dovecot tutorial (for ISPConfig 3), and hit some problems when I was at the Installing FTP part.

When it told me to restart the ftp server, it said something couldnt be found (i'm not too sure what it was, as i'm new to all this). I skipped the FTP steps as I just wanted to get everything installed, but now I can't get it working at all.

I used apt-get to remove the proftpd and used a different tutorial to install that, but it still won't start. Now i'm not sure what to remove to get rid of the new one I installed, and i'm absolutely lost on what to do with getting FTP working.

Sorry if I have missed out any information, not sure what is needed.
