What you are trying to do is fairly easy (i've tried mailing you a link 
to my "m0n0wall Traffic Shaping Introduction" off list, but doesnt seem 
like you got it.. its here: http://www.stovring.net/stuff/IPwall_1eng.ppt )

1. run the wizard to set up your traffic shaping in general

2. create a PIPE with the amount of bandwidth you wish to dedicate, 
remember to subtract it from your bandwidth used elsewhere. And Mask: 
destination, you can call it something like "100kb reserved DL".

3. (optional) create a QUEUE with mask "destination", and choose the 
PIPE you created in step 2 (you can call it "100kb reserved DL" again). 
(QUEUES can do weighting, which is the real power behind traffic 
shaping, but it doesnt seem to matter in what you are trying to accomplish)

4. create a RULE, and point it to:
- Target: either the PIPE from step 2 or the QUEUE from step 3
- Interface: WAN
- Protocol: any
- Destination: "single host or alias" and enter the ip you want to 
reserve BW for
- Direction: in

5. now move your newly created rule to the top of the rules list.

now you have a reserved bandwidth for downloading, you can repeat the 
steps for reserving upload, just remember to change the interface to 
LAN, direction out, and use source address instead of destination.

Hope it clears things up, else feel free to ask.
