As Drew already said, `tramp-default-method' shall preserve your
ange-ftp settings.

Emacs 22 comes with Tramp 2.0, which is way slow. Upgrading to Emacs 23
shall speed up.

There are also lots of settings, which would ease your life (for example
avoiding to type your passwords again and again).

Tramp is useful to access machines which do not run an ftp daemon. It
offers a lot of different access methods, for example you can access
machines running MS Windows, or even Android based cellular phones. (*)

Tramp does more than file transfer. It allows you also to run remote
processes. (*)

(*): depends on the installed Tramp version.
