I have looked and found pieces of info but no clear stepwise description of how to upload many documents to the repository.

I gather it is best to use an ftp client. My questions, therefore are, specifically:
1. what client have people found useful?
2. what has to be running in the alfresco instance to accept the connection? (if I go to "http://localhost:8080/alfresco/webdav/" in IE or FFX I get name/pw prompt, enter them, and get a directory listing but no way to upload.)
3. what is the specific url for the ftp client?
4. will I see a general doc "repository" or do I place content in spaces it is intended for?
5. do I have to restart the server to cause the new content to be indexed?

I posted another question earlier about upgrading from 1.4 to 2.0 with the same general thrust as this one, namely that a list tasks/solutions "For Dummies" would reduce what I see as a major frustration of using this great product.
