I can replace the spaces with '_' and upload the files
again but my connection isn't very fast. It's probably
easier to just rename the files in the /music dir. This will
have to be corrected by someone with full rights on the
ftp site however.

Ogg is indeed better suited for those low bandwidth
rates, better than MP3. I can probably do a lowend
version of the files in 64Kbps later in the week. That
would reduce the size by a factor of 3 (10Mb).
