FTP problems

Hello PowerPeople

I'd like to try to install Debian on my PowerMac box, but I'm already
stuck when it comes to downloading the whole binary-powerpc tree. Every
ftp client I tried to use for a recursive get thinks that the sym links
are directories, tries to "cd" there, gets an error (since it's actually
a link to a file), and skips. I noticed that most of these links go into
a few other trees, like one or two binary-all.

Maybe I could just download the whole bin-ppc tree without these linked
files, and then download the few trees like this binary-all directory.
But I'd like to make sure that I don't miss anything.

If anybody knows about an FTP client that can recursively download and
doesn't get fooled because of these links, just tell me. I have Macs,
PCs (NT or Linux) and Suns around me, the client does not need to be for

Thanks for any help you can give me
