Unhappy How to get a new distro out to the public?


I'm working on a new distro based on Knoppix and I want to let other people download it for test and feedback. Were can I post the distro so people can download it? I tried starting a project on Sourceforge but was turned down do to the size. I would like to find a place that would provide me with web page space as well.
Regards,
Shane

www.fireshmeat.net does not host projects, it only provides links to existing ones.
Thanks though

You could submit the distro for inclusion on distrowatch.com:

Submit Distribution
http://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=submit
"If you'd like to have your (favourite) distribution listed on DistroWatch, you will greatly speed up the process if you fill the form below. Please make sure that the form is as complete as possible before submitting it as incomplete forms will be discarded. Your submission will be manually reviewed before it is formally listed. Please note that this form is for submission of new distributions only; email us directly with distribution release news. Also, due to time constraints and other priorities, certain types of distributions, such as small, floppy-based, embedded and Windows-based distributions are currently not accepted for full listing (these will only be listed on the Related Links page)."

I think Distrowatch only links to distros I don't think they host them, or am I wrong?

Well if you have broadband, why not host it on your own pc.

I have a cable modem but it is limited in the return-path (upload) direction to 128kb/s. There is also the issue that it is against the contract to host websites with the personal cable modem package and the business package is more expensive and less reliable than renting commercial web space.
