If you wanna create a sub domain ftp.mysite.com you just need to add a entry in your bind zone or at your provider site.
Example for a domain:
mysite.com => 126.96.36.199
www.mysite.com => mysite.com
ftp.mysite.com => mysite.com
or: ftp.mysite.com => 188.8.131.52
It is not necessary that ftp.mysite.com is on the same Server as your web-site.
If you want to run it on the same server you can program the ftp to simply show a different folder on your system when the authentication is anonymous.
You can use one of the two howto tutorials to setup the ftp server, also related on the software you wanna install.
