FTP won't work.  The 'working' directory is really a symbolic link to a
place in my home directory.  Since the FTP server does a chroot() to
/home/ftp, it cannot get to the /home/greerga the symlink wants.

Oasis 2-pre stuff is based on bpl15, not the latest running CVS.

Works fine in Lynx from elsewhere for me.
