I've followed the instructions here on making a .netrc file to store my FTP logins. I don't know where to put this file though. I've tried it in various places, but Emacs doesn't seem to recognise it.
I'm using EmacsW32.

Emacs does have password caching built in in
password-cache.el but for some reason the default time it remembers passwords is 16 seconds.
To change this either use
M-x customize-group and select the
password group or add the something like following to your
;Cache passwords for one hour (setq password-cache-expiry 3600)
;Don't expire cached passwords (setq password-cache-expiry nil)
