Nah, let's not try to be too smart here, Mount Point is probably best we
can come up with, and it could (in fact it definitely _should_) be
explained in tooltip. There simply isn't two-words-long description of
it suitable for totally unfamiliar user, and putting any strange name
there will be disrespectful to user already familiar with mount point
concept, discarding their previous knowledge.

Yeah, "Public FTP" gets thumbs up from me. "Private FTP" may be better
changed with "FTP (with Username)" (is ftp server published on some web
forum, with login reggaemp3/reggaemp3[1] "public", or "private"?), but I
may be wrong :)

"[ ]Use remembered password", and hint text along the lines of "Password
will be asked for if necessary" should be good enough.

One more thing, this mockup doesn't take into account recent servers
