Fedora Q

I used BitTorrent and it worked great. On my Comcast cable modem line I
got a consistent 170kByte/sec download. Just allow it to 'ramp up' for a
couple minutes. It starts slow but after a minute or two, you will have
the full speed.

(also: I am willing to provide free CD sets for self-pickup if someone
doesn't want to spend al lthe time downloading them ;-) )
