We might be able to help. I could set up an older PC with Linux,
outside our firewall (you could install ipchains to protect it as a
virtual firewall), and keep it at our office. I suppose the things that
might make you not want to do to this are if the bandwidth demands can't
be met by our ~750K bit SDSL connection, or if the bandwidth demands on
the server can't be met by an older PC.
But why not use sourceforge?
