The packages mirror is RR-DNS'd, currently between 2 servers, but will
add more as information is provided to me about additional servers. I'd
*think* they should be able to handle the load without difficulty - both
have pretty fat pipes.
I'm cross-posting this to LFS-Admin - Justin, Tim, in your opinion, can
you guys bear this load?
