"The Linux Mirror Project, TLMP for short, is a site run by two
normal people who want to support the distribution of linux to the
many thousands of people who download it every day. Our plan is to
mirror all the major linux distributions, such as Fedora,
Slackware, Debian, Mandrake, Knoppix, and many more, using the
BitTorrent protocol to distribute bandwidth effectively among
"In short terms, we mirror linux distributions, to take the
strain off other overloaded mirrors, and to provide mirrors for
users, if they have problems downloading from other mirrors, or
wish to use BitTorrent because they are on slower connections, such
as 56k, and want to be able to resume their download easily..."
