If you are using Linux, as I assume you are, then use the attached file, 
linuxize_descriptors, to change the des file.  This shell script provided by 
the Ferret developers replaces the `$' in the descriptor file with `\' and 
`&'.  (If you are not using Linux, then I am not suer what the problem is.)
