Hi Norbert, Thanks for the advice. I got the ftp service up, and can 
access my /home/username directory via gFTP but not /var/www/html/ even 
though 'username' is part of the 'apache' group. It's a start though; 
I'll ftp the info across and then login via a thin client and move the 
files around to /var/www/html/ that way.
