Not sure you actually want ftp. I am sure you want sftp, which you get 
by aptitude install openssh. openssh-server?

You would want ftp if you want people to anonymously download from 
your linux site, but I expect you're first talking about just getting 
the files from win to lin.

ftp passwords going across the web in cleartext, being a bad thing.

Don't remember how much you've used ssh, but, in essence, think 
encrypted telnet and you've essentially got it. Once ssh is loaded, 
filezilla will start working. You may have to play a bit with 
directories / permissions, but you should be able to filezilla files 
to your home directory right off the bat. Then on linux, move them to 
where you really want them to be. It's a start.

cygwin, and openssl, are a worthy thing to have up and going on your 
windows box.
