[SOLVED] Text Link To A File

Hey guys,
This seems like it should be straight forward but I'm not seeing how to do this - and can't find it in search...

How do I make a text link to a file. I want my visitors to be able to click on a text link so that they can download a file. (I don't want to link to a URL - but rather a file sitting in my ftp which can be downloaded by the visitor).

I'd like to do this in the center area in one of my pages.

Chris

Like this?

<a href="ftp://animcareerpro.com/blog/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/Flash_Workshop1_Ex.A.fla" >TestLink</a>

Note:
The file I want for download is: Flash_Workshop1_Ex.A.fla


Windows gave me this error message when I tried to download it from my site.
C:\Users\Chris\Desktop\Flash_Workshop1_Ex.A.fla could not be saved, because the source file could not be read.
This is if I right click and go - "save link as"

If I just click on the link it times out.

Here's my site if you want to test it animcareerpro.com/blog - In the "Training Exercises" page.

It may have to do with the multiple '.' in the file name. why don't you zip the file

Ok, I got rid to the "." and ziped it but that's not working. I'm getting the same message - been fussing with it for hours - any suggestions. I'm still working on it here...
