Two hours? Ouch! I live in New Zealand and I downloaded kernel 2.4.0 (after
trying for two hours to connect to because the NZ mirror didn't
yet have the final release) in about 50 minutes or something :)

But then, I have heard that analog line condition in NZ is alot better than it
is in the US and alot of other countries.
(I have a 56k modem - it connects to my provider at around
54333bps and usually gives me 4-6k/sec on ftp transfers)

Who needs a signature when you're omnipresent? :)
