Anon ftp uses a chroot environment so you can't link to any directory that's
not within it's chroot. One possiblity is to mount /fat32 within the ftp
users home/root directory. Another one, that isn't heard of much is to
mount_null /fat32 into the ftp chroot file system. Please keep in mind that
null mounting, last I heard,  should be treated as experimental at best. For
more info on null mounting, check out man mount_null.
