depends on the FTP server in use and how it is configured, they could be the usual account password in /etc/shadow (or similar) or they could be stored in a database (e.g. look for a ftp table in mysql) or in a hashtable somewhere, find the FTP server type, go to thier website and read one of the how-tos
