FTP progs on Mac

Heya all,

A friend of mine owns a Mac, and he needs to do some FTP-ing; create/remove (sub-)folders, uploading/deleting (lots of) files.

I don't know anything about Macs, and my friend's not a real genius =)

Anyway, here's the questions:

- Does MacOs (9 I believe) have built-in FTP support/program?
- If so, how to find it? =)
- Are there any other good, *easy-to-use* (prefer graphic interface with drag 'n drop etc) FTP-progs for Mac (maybe even freeware?)

Thanks for your information!

    My favourite FTP program for Mac is Transmit:
    Not free and it's for OS X, but if you want the best, that's it.

    For OS 9, I recommend Fetch:

    Educational licenses are available.

    I don't believe $25 is a lot to pay for programs that work as well as these do. Using a Mac makes you much more inclined to pay for good software because it usually exceeds your expectations. Any amount of money is worth paying for a well-written, intuitive progie.
