For Mac OS 9, your best bet is to grab one of the more established classic Mac FTP clients out there: Fetch, NetFinder, or Anarchie. They're all pretty popular, and work great with our services.
You can find any of these at www.versiontracker.com
As a general rule, doing stuff on your Mac won't cause any problems, as most 'web stuff' is fairly cross-platform. If you run into trouble, though, feel free to post a message and we'll be happy to help you out!
