I heard also (via a rescent Yeast Genome Meeting) from Chris Fields of
the same anonymous FTP address. It did not work ... but it was fixed

so it is your vanila flavor anonymous login, id as password type of
FTP site, but I was disapointed to not find all those new ESTs they
have been talking about ... or so it appears ...
