    well, for the client just go find an FTP client: cuteFTP, wsftp, or even use the command line ftp.

    For the server, you need to install an ftp server app. On unix you've got things like vsftpd and proftpd. Either of these is fine.

    What flavor of linux is the server running?

    A good Windows FTP client..hmm, I'd recommend FileZilla Server personally. In terms of FTP client, I'd recommend FileZilla client or WS_FTP Professional.

    I can't help you with windoze ftp servers, though for clients FileZilla is cool, WS_FTP is good, as is CuteFTP.

    Slackware, hardcore.

    Just head to slackware.com, go to packages, and packages again, and search for ftp. Download ProFTPD to your server, and do: pkginstall proftpd-1.3.... or maybe it's installpkg, but whatever, do that, you'll be up and running.

    As for your hostname...use your IP if you don't have a domain name registered. Your hostname is your domain name. If you don't have one, try it out with 127.0.0.1 first.

    Go to www.dns2go.com and register an account, give them your IP and register for a domain.
