i want to install vsftpd on my gentoo computer. Ive already used emerge to download and install it, but im not sure where to go from here. Are there any websites you can suggest to help me set up users/start vsftpd or any of that stuff? this is my first experience with gentoo, and the command line version of vsftpd, so im not quite sure what to do here. Thanks for any help.

I have a general question about vsftp. Can Windows users access the vsftp server and if so then how?

As long as your ftp server is setup properly and your firewall and/or router is setup so that it allows remote connections to your server it should be no problem.

There is two ways depending on your existing network.

If you don't have a router then all the other person has to do is using an ftp client (or if they just need to grab something use a web browser) and go to the IP address of the server. Something like:

ftp://192.168.0.0/

If theres a username/password it'll be something like:

ftp://username@192.168.0.0/

and it should prompt for a password.

This will work for people both inside and outside your network as long as you don't have a router and your ISP doesn't filter FTP stuff.

If you have a router and you want people outside your network to use your ftp you'll have to enable port forwarding.
