For those cases http://mirror.centos.org/ now(!) should be enough, we
give those ips out depending on which region you are in. Those in Asia,
South America or Africa could have a slightly problematic user
experience, though.

I don't think mirrorlist can be used at that stage, as it clearly is
asking that before network really is up, IIRC. But I may remember
incorrectly.
