ProFTPD is very nice, and has had very few security on problems on linux and
is fairly easy to setup.
If you don't need to serve lots of connections off your ftp server, you
might consider using ncftpd. If you limit the number of accepted to
connections to 4 or 5 and don't use it for commercial activities, you can
use it for personal use.
Theres also a port of the openbsd ftp server available for linux as well,
have a look on freshmeat for that.
