We use http://www.webftp.org/. All you have to do is turn on FTP access on 
your file servers and you are set. For added security you could tell the 
ftp server on the file servers to only accept connections from the 
webserver running webftp.

BTW, using an entire server for this would probably be overkill. :-)
