Free Linux distro host?

Does anyone know where I can get hosting for a Linux distro (free, hopefully)?

I run a server, but I can't handle large amounts of traffic (Comcast doesn't like servers, anyway) and my upload speed is slow, so I can't host it.

Or maybe a free file host that doesn't have a small file expiration time?

I need at least 1 GB space total.

My recommendation, you're gonna have to fork it out and buy your own hosting, to suit your needs. I don't know of any free host that is going to allow large downloads and possibly high traffic. The only thing I can think of is to start a site on a free host and find potential host providers to mirror your files/downloads, etc.

What's wrong with torrenting it to start with? Get it on a P2P network and then, when enough people have access to it, someone is bound to mirror it.

Let Distrowatch know about the distro so that others will know...
