Red face Can't reach the main Slackware directory, login required

Hi, everyone.

The Slackbook reads:

The precompiled Slackware kernels are available in the /kernels directory on the Slackware CD-ROM or on the FTP site in the main Slackware directory.
I am unable to reach it, what's the proper login?

[mike:~]$ ftp
Connected to
220 FTP server ready
Name ( user
331 Password required for user.
530 Login incorrect.
Login failed.
Remote system type is UNIX.
Using binary mode to transfer files.
ftp> 221 Goodbye.
Thanks in advance.
