Mandrake HTTP and FTP download

when the install program boots for mandrake it asks you if you want to install the rest of the OS via HTTP or FTP. are there any internet servers out there that serve mandrake files for download? if so what are they?

The mirrors are all out of synch right now, as Mandrake is switching over its file structure. Everything should be back to normal around Tuesday, so it may be best to wait until then.

This is also a good site, as it gives you the mirrors plug the code, based on your preferences:
