Not really.. it's just a standard install on an athlon XP 2400.  It is 
linux though, which makes it a bit faster.. not hugely faster though - 
you wouldn't notice the difference over an ADSL line.

Is there any AV doing realtime scanning somewhere?  Maybe on the client?

The other possiblities are things like the HD running in PIO mode (13Gb 
sounds old, unless it's SCSI), broken network card/hub (test the 
download speed by grabbing something from it over FTP/IIS), etc.

I can do a 'cvs ls -R' over our lan to cvs.cvsnt.org in 5 seconds... 
locally it's around the same.
