"best" password list is hard to quantify. 

But, hydra I believe comes with a default one, as does Cain and Abel.  Can start with those. 

If I can dig up my links to others, I'll post.

Oh my, I've been "dude"-ed.  :-)

This is for testing against boxes you own or have written legal permission to test, right? 

THC-Hydra is the tool.  Read its lengthy README. http://freeworld.thc.org/thc-hydra/

For a password list, turns out my recollection was poor and hydra doesn't seem to come with one.  But such lists aren't hard to find the new fashioned way:

Re: FTP brute force

My FTP server will ban IP addresses with excessive failed password attempts. Might be something you want to check for.
Put that in your pipe and grep it!
