ultra short version for now:

- http is better for this task than ftp.  
  don't bother with setting up ftp server.
- I recommend making /home as big as possible.  I use /home/debian/mirror
  for mirror, and have apache export that as /debian.

  Current woody i386 only complete mirror (counting non-US) is just
under 5 Gigs.

  I highly recommend my variant of the debmirror script (which
the package maintainer has not bothered to comment on), I will
send it along later.
  I have not taught it to mirror all the files required to 
act as a install host... in particular the base and boot floppies
need to be downloaded manually.


  I conveniently forgot how much of an absolute PITA upgrading Redhat is...
