Thanks kokjo, and I appreciate the offer, but I think it's important for me to go through this so that I can learn what I am doing on linux to some extent.  I don't want to be dependent on others to fix anything that might go wrong.
fair enough. Cheesy

new offer:
i can learn it to you over irc, if you like Smiley
maybe for a coin or two.
I might take you up on that, but I'm low on coins at the moment... don't have a whole lot extra I can spend.  Gotta pay the bills.  Wink

Thanks drgr33n, don't feel sorry for me though.  I've definitely learned a lot about linux... how to do basic navigation, unzip tars, install libs, install OS's, use SSH, change the root PW, modify text files with pico, download with wget, etc.  Very valuable, because now I feel like I can at least try to solve issues that come up.

And on that note, I installed Ubuntu, downloaded bitcoind, ran the 64-bit bitcoind, and just like that, it worked.  I am happy.  Smiley

New question: I've installed FTP via vsftpd, and created a new user with access to the www directory, but can't figure out how to make that directory the "home" or "default" directory for said user.  And also remove the ability for the ftp user to get to the root directory through FTP - I only want it to have access to the www directory and any child folders.

EDIT: Nevermind, figured out how to by setting up a user_config_dir path in vsftpd.conf, then defining specific user permissions there.

you could also have done:
Code:
usermod --home /path/to/www <username>
if you want to jail the user in his home when he is using vsftp, you can enable a chroot in vsftp. Smiley
