It depends. If the license permits redistribution, we MIGHT be able to
host them in our ibiblio mirror. But it's kind of outside our charter
with ibiblio.

But since this is mostly drivers for AST computers, a better solution
might be for you to contact the ibiblio folks directly, and ask if
they will host them for you under
http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/micro/pc-stuff/ (perhaps
http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/micro/pc-stuff/ast/). Again, the license
would have to permit redistribution. Usually this requires the
original, unmodified distribution files (zip, exe, ...)
