um, word of caution. i host content that was slashdotted last year and
my G4 with 100MB ethernet onto my university's network was saturated
for 4 days, clocking several gigabytes of downloads. it still attracts
a lot of traffic (nearly 18 months later) and to date would have
attracted at least 20 gig of downloads.

if your isp agreement doesn't have nasty hidden bandwidth costs, go for
it, if it does, you don't want to be slashdotted.
