Just use your browser (Netscape or Internet Explorer) with that address <ftp://ftp.bates-lee.org/pub/> which puts you in FTP mode, you'll have instant access to the directory list.
If you insist on using an FTP client simply use <ftp.bates-lee.org> as the Host and <pub/> as the Directory. No not enter any info in the User ID or Password areas! Leave those blank. It works for me.
This information is considered temporary in nature (although there's a good possibility that it could be up for many months yet) and may need to be removed if space is needed for other stuff, so a web link from the CR site is probably not a great idea.
