Re: pool

Well, I am considering the possibility of using my work internet access
to create a mirror, and then hooking my machine to the mirror in disk to
transfer it to my potato system. My question is: What's the best way of
mirroring from a windows machine, may be rsync provided in the
pseudo-image kit for windows? But it seems to me that it will not
function. Any ideas?
