I am trying to log on to ftp.apple.com to download the multipart 9.1 update using fetch. What do I enter for the username and password?

Leave username blank and type your email addy as the password. You may need many tries to get in (as did I).

Sorry MC Escher, I forgot to mention that I used Fetch and no username or password was required. Guess I wasn't thinkin' straight after having such success with that ftp link! (Thanks for covering my mistake, tooki!)
