you can do that now.

create a folder inside your /var/www directory (or whatever the server
root is ) fill it with what you want to serve.  call it with
http://yourservername/yourdirectoryname   you should get a listing of
whatever files you filled the folder with.

get an ftp server going on the same box and create accounts for whoever
you want to upload/download things to specified directories.
