You can use 'dftp' to manage your installation from an FTP site.  It's
available as part of the distribution under "contrib/tools/dftp-1.1.csh".
Just rename it to "dftp".  For now, you'll need csh/tcsh to run it; I'm
working on a Perl version.  Type "dftp -help" for info on how to use it.

'dftp' will run on any unix box, but if you can FTP from your Linux box,
that's probably the best place to use it.

    In theory, theory and practice are the same.  In practice, they're not.
