The srpms are here: http://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/enterprise/, 
but note that the build is non-trivial and has already been done by 
Scientific Linux (http://www.scientificlinux.org/).  Their version isn't 
as exact a copy of the upstream binaries as CentOS plans to produce but 
it is suitable for general use and likely better than anyone could do as 
their first attempt.
