    if your FTP is full, i would assume that most of the bandwidth is gone at
    this point... how much does http help if the pipe (t1?) is already full?
    I share tom's sentiments, and I have a fairly fast (500kbps) connection,
    but can hardly ever provide me with download speeds above
    20kb/sec, most times not above 15 (I can get around 40kb/sec from fast
    mirrors.) I scoured for a long time trying to find ANY sort of
    list of people who might mirror the site. Eventually I just gave up and
    waited for to find someone who had a copy of the kernel.
    Even though theres not a solid mirroring structure out there yet- do you
    have any sort of idea of some sites that keep a fairly curent mirror?
