The quality loss comes with the original MPEG compression. Converting to the superior .dv files shouldn't add additional losses.
Premiere can't create .dv files directly (that I know of). It works with and creates only DV AVI Type 2 files (or .mov on Macs). But there may be a way to 'convert' the .avi files to .dv files without any quality loss. Check around Google.
Just keep in mind that even if you find such a converter, you're back to the same FTP time issues, as .dv and .avi will be the same size, just a slightly different file format.
Thanks very much Jim...
