Ummm, if it's localhost - i.e. the machine that you are typing all the  
commands on - why are you using FTP?

Why not just copy the files from the unzipped directory to  
C:\blah\foo\apache2\root or whatever the easy php web root is?

Also, FTP probably won't wotk on port 80 - that's a webserver.  Try  
port 21 instead...
