Well, that's why I asked.  I see, if memory servers as I am on the  
road at present, /usr/bin/ssh and /usr/bin/ftp but not sshd nor ftpd.   
So, Ubuntu installs the clients and not the server daemons?

OK, so which clients are they, vsftp or proftp?  Is it openssh- 
client?   Do I have to install the matching servers?  Can I get away  
without installing any clients?

BTW, only the 32bit CD boots up....
