Do you have ssh access to your old host? Can you rsync it directly to your dreamhost account?

the best advice I can give ( to make it go a bit faster) is if you do have ssh access on your old site, zip your entire directory up. Even if it’s one large (really large) file it will make it go much faster and make your chance of having errors much much smaller.
