Where is my bottleneck?

I'm running rsync via ssh on two machines connected with 100 Mbit/s
Ethernet cards (at high speed) via a Linksys switch. It's all right
here in a single closet. I'm sending large files (initial transfer,
nothing preexists on the destination machine) and seeing transfer rates
in the 2 Mbit/s range. The CPUs on both machines are more than 90%
idle, and I upped the --block-size to 256 kilobytes. Disk activity is
very light. Fedora Core 1, i686.
I don't expect 100 Mbit/s by any means, but 2? Is this typical? What
am I missing?
Thanks a million!
