OK, I'm a sucker, but I had never heard of this being a feature of OS X 10.2 so I thought, what the heck... Tried it, and it works perfectly. I tried on another OS X machine (10.1) and received a standard user login dialog box -- presumably because anonymous ftp is not available. On the other machines that allow anon ftp, I was logged in immediately without the dialog box and presented with whatever anon ftp collection they had available. Tried it with linux and solaris servers. Seemed to work well and quickly, although I don't know that this would be my preferred way to browse an ftp server...

For what it is worth, this is an extremely "clean" install -- I *just* installed OS X, and I haven't installed anything else.

Just an observation, but on those servers which allow anonymous ftping for which OSX does not display a login/pass box, and you want to input one, try typing them into the connect to server box:
ftp://username:password@server.name
the same way you would in a web browser.
