I am looking at running a basic ftp site. Mostly family will be using it. Now i do use my linux as my desktop. Am i able to run VSFTPD in the background and still use the desktop okay? or does this only work on a standalone box? Thanks.

As long as you don't have a huge family that is constantly uploading and downloading where your connection would be swamped out, you should be just fine. We routinely do development work with a full GUI running on test servers with FTP, HTTP, Sendmail, dovecot and DNS/ntpd all running concurrently. Your family may see some slowness if you don't have adequate RAM or play graphics intensive games, but the box should stay functional. The overhead for most services if not running a commercial site type of load is not that big.
