/etc/vsftpd.conf is where the options are
rpm -ql vsftpd
tells you what files are in the vsftpd package.

No reason why you can't disable xinetd from running it and run it
standalone, you just need a SySV init script for it. There are a ton of

You could either learn how to work with or around yast, or go for
another distro where you're on your own re system configuration.
