    Ok, here's my situation:

    I got a bunch of ip's,
    FTP isnt running,
    and Nameserver-less

    Question 1, How do i set up the first nameservers? I have enough ip's

    Question 2, FTP isnt running, how do i start it?

    Question 3. in the services menu, it says BIND isnt running, when i press start, i get this:

    Up LevelUp Level
    Unable to make action: Unable to manage service by dnsmng: dnsmng: Service named failed to start
    0: /usr/local/psa/admin/htdocs/server/restart_services.php:28 psaerror(string "Unable to make action: Unable to manage service by dnsmng: dnsmng: Service named failed to start")

    anyone know how to get this machine up and running witouth problems?

    Please check what superserver is used in the system. If you run xinetd you should create configuration file for FTP service because by
    default Plesk deb package configures proftpd with inetd.

    The following line will be added to your /etc/inetd.conf file:

    ftp stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd in.proftpd

    If you are indeed using xinetd, you will have to convert the above into
    /etc/xinetd.conf format, and add it manually. See
    /usr/share/doc/xinetd/README.Debian for more information.

    So you should create /etc/xinetd.d/ftp_psa like:

    service ftp
    disable = no
    socket_type = stream
    protocol = tcp
    wait = no
    user = root
    instances = UNLIMITED
    server = /usr/sbin/in.proftpd
    server_args = -c /etc/proftpd.conf

    And restarted xinetd with "/etc/init.d/xinetd restart". After that ftp should work.
