If the client really is clueless, they'd appreciate you creating something like a droplet to help them upload files. There are numerous ways to do this on the Mac, Transmit has a specific feature for this.
Coming from a linux and free software world, it may seem odd, but occasionally it's worth actually paying for software, even things as mundane as a FTP client.

Right. This is a 'do my homework' question - apologies all.
I'm really clueless about Macs. A client of $JOB appears to work from a Mac (as based on his mail agent being Microsoft Entourage), and is not incredibly technical. He should access an sftp server (ftp/ssh2). I would point him toward Filezilla, or possibly Core-FTP Lite if it were Windows.
A quick Google shows several options, none of which I can assess.
Rbrowser and Fugu - free and shiny.
Fetch - free for educational use, which applies here.
Transmit - shiny but not Free.
MacSFTP - development appears to have stopped. Also, commercial.
Any preferences? Thoughts? Amusing duck stories? Thanks!
(Don't know which version of OS X he's using. His Entourage is 10.1.4, fwiw)
