You'll need the traffic shaper.
Get the latest kernel source from www.kernel.org, and read the info on the traffic shaper.
any 2.3.x kernel has traffic shaper, but remember, those are experimental releases of the kernel, and even the trafic shapermodule is not stable yet. Although it may be more stable than other commercial software.
More info on compiling the kernel is in /usr/docs/

max is 256k, though
other shapers:

I suggest you use CBQ

Very flexible, kernel based and you can easely limit multiple interfaces.

Look for the iproute2 package, and configure Networking options -> QoS and/or fair queueing in the kernel.

Sorry, don't have the exact links nearby...
