As I have posted, the performance is BAD seen from here. Using our
34Mbit connection at SunSITE I was only able to pull ~3KB/s.

This sounds like a poorly connected site (modem ?) which practically
useless as a web/ftp site expecting anything more than local access.

At SunSITE we have two different categories of services. Project
hosting and mirroring. We would love to host muLinux as a project,
but I am not sure that the answer will be the same for an application
for a mirror of muLinux.

I don't even think it is the old computer that is setting the limits
now. A website needs a good internet connection. Even a 128kbit/s
ISDN is a poor connection. Upgrading the FLUG machine does nothing
unless a better connection is acquired.
