  I did the above (copy+paste; *WITHOUT* the "#", in case anyone asks).
Here's what happens.  Question... why is it prompting me with "530 Please
login with USER and PASS." *AFTER* I give username "anonymous".  BTW, if
I try any username, other than anonymous, it dies with a message about
being only an anonymous ftp server.

  I did manage to get the video game transferred with tftp, after a bit
of extra work.  I don't know if it's the old OS/2 Warp tftp client, or
part of the protocol, but it can only transfer files up to 33553920
bytes in size, i.e. 32 * 1024 * 1024 - 512 bytes.  32 megabytes looks
like some sort of coded-in limit.  I had to do the transfer in pieces
less than 32 megabytes.  I still want to get anonymous ftp working.
