I gave your howto a quick read. Very nice web page! A few comments:
I think it would be good to add something at the beginning about exactly
what you're trying to accomplish with vsftpd and how you have it setup.
That way I could tell easily if it's similar to how the reader is trying
to setup vsftpd. i.e. Is it setup as an anonymous public FTP server?
User login (chroot to their home dir)? Is it exposed to the internet?
How many users you have, and why you're using a berkley db instead
You're also doing some things that are non-standard for Devil-Linux.
You're putting your partitions in /etc/fstab instead of using LVM like
the DL docs suggest. And why are you running "insserv" instead of
activating the service in "setup"?
You also spelled "proper" wrong (propper) under Basic Configuration. :-)
