with an ftp client.......

konquereor is a good graphical ftp client.
ftp is a good command line ftp client

for the graphical method, just type in the URL (universal resource locator)

ftp://username@ftpserverort

with command line,
ftp ftpserver

type help for a list of commands.
ot help command for specific help.

common commands...

bin (binary mode)
cd (change directory)
ls (list)
put (upload)
get (download)
mput (multiple upload)
mget (multiple download)
bye (logoff)

Im not sure what you mean, perhaps you need to explain what you want a little more fully.
Do you just want to connect to an ftp server? If this is the case you can use a progrma like gFTP. If gFTP is installed, it will be under the Internet part of the gnome menu. Or, you could use the console based ftp client by typing ftp in the console, although this method requires a little knowledge about FTP commands.
Please tell me what you need and I will try to help more :-)
Chris.

If you were using wsftp in windoze and can still access it, check on the settings you have there while setting up gftp - they're going to be identical.

Alright at my school, we each get a 250 meg ftp folder, that i normally access by putting a URL into IE, then just drag and drop. Can i do that in linux? if not, how exactly would i go about doing it in commandline? Thanks a bunch guys.

I would expect you could, the browsers should both work.
Does the URL you have to enter start with ftp://? If it does then you would be able to use it with gFTP, or console FTP programs.
If it doesnt start with ftp:// then you dont need an FTP client to access it. You should have no problems connecting to it with a web browser such as Mozilla.

Don't mean to hijack, but when I'm using gftp, and go to edit an html file, save it, it doesnt' actually get saved.

As qwijibow said try to use Konqueror if you like to drag and drop.

As for the command line:

~> ftp username@yourschool.com
Should say something like welcome to the FTP server st school name. or something.
ENTER PASS;
ftp> help < again as qwijibow said try this and then 'help command'.
ftp> help get
get receive file
ftp> help put
put send one file
ftp> help mget
mget get multiple files
ftp> help mput
mput send multiple files

So to put a file:

ftp> put /path/to/local/file

legend=type the bold.

you can do it the same way you did with internet explorer in linux... but instead of iinternet explorer, do the exact samething in konqueror.
