I have about 2 megs of webspace.  A friend has a ftp on a T3 line.  He has agreed to give me space there.  How would I call images from his FTP on a html page??  I've tried img src but it doesn't work.  Is there anything in particular I need to add to the HTML code.

The ftp has a anonymous account setup, that has access to the files i am trying to get to.  Is there anything special HE needs to do for me to see these files??

FTP is rather unusual, but the following should work:

<img src="ftp://servername.com/directory/image.gif">

note that there must be a ftp:// before the domain name and file name in order to identify the protocol.
