So yes, a new hd can definately increase your ftp speeds as I found out, I was getting 2mb/s on original and after I put in my new maxtor 120g it bumped it up to about 4mb/s and if I use the xbox ftp client program and download from my comp I usually get about 7mb/s
Just a word of advice you almost always get higher download speeds than upload speeds, (ex. - use xbox to download stuff from your computer to the xbox, DON'T use the xbox to upload stuff to your pc (much slower))

My network is pretty big though. There is about 200 foot of wire for the data to get from my pc to my xbox even though it's right next to me. I'm thinking that maybe why but then the fact that i get the same speed when i login twice bites me in the ass. I download at about 5mb/s though. Does anyone know whats up?
*All this is with an 80GB WD drive.

if you only get 192kbps upload even with only one user logged in, then your problem probably has something to do with the ftp client you're using(or could be a problem with the router or switch that you're using, as well, assuming you're using one). my suggestion, get a 3 foot crossover cable, switch your NIC into full duplex 100baset(or tx), and try it then. on my WD 40gb drive, I can get about 6 or 7 MBps upload speed (12 MBps being the cap for 100baset) which mostly has to do with the fact that the drive is only on a ata33 bus, it's only got a 2MB cache, and I've got a crappy d-link nic with very little in the way of cache itself.
