Any distro would be suitable for this. Most of them come with a choice of FTP servers. ProFTPd and vsftpd are popular choices.

As you asked on the forum, that is where I replied, to leave the thread publically accessible. If you register an account on this site, you'll get an email whenever anyone responds to your posts.

I'd use webmin for remotely administering ftp. I don't think it's anything wrong about vsftpd, but I used ProFTPd before and I got it fairly well configured in a short period of time. And I'd use Debian for this - mainly because it's solid and easy to maintain. Important questions you will have to know the answer to are:
- do you allow anonymous ftp or user / passwd login? do you need sftp, maybe?
- do you allow uploads?
