I'm in desperation mode here because this site was supposed to be 
live last Wednesday. As a result, my testing has not been well controlled.

I don't think [[Attach:hi,ho,hello.txt]] works. It showed a link 
requiring an upload even if the file was there.

I tried Intermap:
Paper:  http://example.eton.ca/wiki/uploads/Nov-2005/

Then on a page:
[[(Paper:)07_Our Business Processes - Lepingwell, ABCD.pdf]]

and it made a huge mess of the link, turning it into some kind of 
WikiWord thing like this:

And of course since it is not "attach", there is no upload prompt if 
the file is not there.

What I have fallen back on is a fully qualified URL with manual FTP. Yuk.
