That's because you are trying to FTP the directory containing the Slackware files, which insn't a regual file.
If you 'cd slackware-8.1-iso' you'll see:

CHECKSUMS                              README.TXT
CHECKSUMS.md5                          slackware-8.1-install.iso

Then "get slackware-8.1-install.iso" and things will go much better.

Yes, if you have a reliable Internet connection. And there are FTP clients than can resume a failed download. I use ncftp on Linux and it can resume an interrupted download. Othe clients exist for windows and Linux.
