    it sounds like he's got an account on a linux server where he can store files, and wants to mount it on his hard drive... but i could be completely wrong

    I've got a dedicated linux server in a data center. I want to mount that volume to my desktop for easy movement of files.

    I don't want command line access, I want to be able to move files back and forth easily and browse directories and such from the finder.

    when you're at the desktop, click on the Go menu, then Connect to Server, enter ftp://[name or ip address of server] then enter. you'll have a virtual disk on your desktop

    "The finder cannot complete the operation because some data in "ftp://domainname" could not be read or written. (Error code -36).
