CDROM.Com was the good site, and when it closed up, and mutated into file planet, it was all downhill.
I don't think the Walnut Creek FTP mutated into FilePlanet. AFAIK it was started and populated from scratch by GameSpy.

I downloaded so many demos, patches and *nix related stuff from Walnut Creek.
A number of WC hierarchies (like idgames, idgames2, planetquake, UWP-UML, etc) were mirrored on ftp://ftp.gamers.org/pub/ which has been the master site for those historical archives (and the GamesDomain and 3DPortal FTPs too) ever since.
