Well, I configured the mirror for http the way you suggested. You can point 
to http://dl.math.wisc.edu/grml/ to get to the mirror. It downloads the 
files via rsync every 4 hours. But can I do just html? I'd have to get 
someone else to poke a hole in the firewall to do rsync and ftp.  My 
department doesn't do its own firewall (its done by the people who maintain 
the network switches and stuff) so I'd have to bump that up the chain of 
command in order to allow connections via rsync & ftp. Not to mention the 
fac that I'd have to install rsync and ftp on our server. If you must have 
rsync and ftp, I'll have to go to a committee and get permission to do all 

Also, I'm not sure about bandwidth information. How do I specify that?
