Need free filehosting service to mirror small ISO temporarily

I have a small (100MB or so) ISO that I need to make publicly but anonymously available to a few people for download via ftp or http.
I haven't got enough room on my PN webspace plus it exposes my PN identity.
I'd ideally like a site where I could upload it, send the url to those who  needs it and "forget" it. It wouldn't ever be a problem if people not known to me were to find it and download it. (It's a Linux distro that I've rebuilt slightly for a specialised purpose)
Somewhere like filebin.ca would be ideal but without their 50MB limit.
Any suggestions of ones which are reliable?
thanks
paul

Have you thought about Digital Vault?
http://www.digitalvault.bt.com/base/login.jsp
I've just created a test account using anonymised details - you don't need genuine email addy etc in the sign-up form, so you can give out the password etc without fear of somebody finding out who *you* are.
If not used for 90 days, the account gets closed and content removed.
Up to 1GB of storage.
Once you have a file there, you can share it out on an invitation only basis.
Would this fit the bill for you?

BT seem to make it complicated AND demand a payment method even for a free service!
I just found filefactory.com -- you can upload an up-to 300MB file instantly without any ergistration and you get a link to it instantly.
if the file is not downloaded in 7 days it's deleted. but you can do this however often you want for free and theres no registration whatsoever
Trouble is it won't seem to work with anything but IE (you have to tell Opera to pretend it's IE and I don't know how to make FF work with it) which is a bit crarp for the Linux users out there ...

Nah, the 1GB service seems free! - I have a test account which you are welcome to have a go with if you want. (Just registered this morning - no payment required)
I'll PM you the details. Wink

thanks -- pm received -- you're clearly gentleman of the Old Skool Smiley
However Firefox says "Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete." and Opera just hangs ... so it appears to be another site that is dependent on IE! Sad
