What? I just went to to moodle home page, download looks to be about 18mb. Even dial up shouldn't be that slow. I hope you didn't upload the 'complete install' - apache, mysql, and php are already installed on the server (and you don't have the kind of access to install these things your self).
You definatly need to learn how to use SSH and the 'wget' command. SSH is the secure version of telnet, a way to conect to your server's command line. wget will download a file for you directly to the server, using DH's mega bandwidth. The 18mb download would have taken a matter of seconds.
