Try this *exactly* in a button script....

on mouseup
  put "ftp://ftp.metacard.com/MetaCard/" into tUrl
  put url tUrl
end mouseup

this returns

-rw-r--r--   1 ftpuser  ftpgroup  3429220 Aug 20 03:34 MacOS.sit
-rw-r--r--   1 ftpuser  ftpgroup  2053629 Aug 20 03:35 MacOS68K.sit
-rw-r--r--   1 ftpuser  ftpgroup  4275781 Aug 20 03:37 MacOSX.sit
-rw-r--r--   1 ftpuser  ftpgroup     3317 Apr 17 01:31 README.1st
etc...

which you can then parse. I guess some servers won't return a directory
listing due to the way they're configured...
