I use the "easy upload" (<http://www.finalwebsites.com/snippets.php? 
id=7>) class which allows me to set file sizes/types as part of my  

Permissions can be a problem.. the upload folder will have to have  
write permissions for the web server (_www or www or nobody or  
whateverTheWebUserIsOnYourSystem).  Those using the files will need  
read privileges at least.
