Another very good FTP program is Anarchie by Peter Lewis. I used a
friend's computer and was amazed at its speed compared to Fetch, which is
very stable though on the sluggish side (IMHO). It comes with a plethora
of bookmarks for FTP sites/mirror sites for Mac software. As to where to
get it - sumex, umich and I believe ftp.tidbits.com.

Cheers
