I'd suggest using an FTP server other than the one that comes with the
operating system. NCFTPD is very good. It is very fast, secure, handles
large loads well, and is free for personal use. You have to pay ($50 I
think) for a commercial license, but if you are using this for business
that should not be a problem.

Get a better CPU. I'd suggest at least an SM50 or SM51. In the US, these
cost about $100 used. For $200 you can get an SM71. (www.gstek.com)
