You don't put the files anywhere, use yum to install the programs:

yum install gftp
yum install ImageMagick

if you compile gftp yourself i think the script will puts the binary in /usr/local/bin/gftp but you can probably tell it to go where ever you want. i'm not totally sure as i haven't typed such magic incantations in a while. i've never used imagemagick and not sure why you would want it on a 'server'.

listen to markkuk, yum is your friend. easier to stay up to date. good luck.

once gftp is installed, how to I access it?

I put gftp at the command prompt and it said that gftp-text has been disabled

if you're looking for a text based ftp client, merely type ftp at the terminal line and you'll most likely see

$ ftp
ftp>

are you using gnome, kde or another manager? if yes you will see gftp in the menu. in gnome, applications => internet => gftp.
