Subject: FTP Fixed

As quite a few of you discovered I didn't have the access privileges quite right
on EDITORS.203, the directory with the Humanist biography files for ftp'ing.
It should work now though.

Note that these services are implemented in an IBM/VM environment, not a
unix environment, so some of the ftp commands you are familiar with will
not work or will work differently. In particular you cannot see the
directory structure with 'dir' -- you must remember that you wish to
'cd EDITORS.203; you can't just poke about, at least not very effectively.

Sorry for the confusion.
