I'm sorry to hi-jack this thread, but tihs is exactly what I've been
looking for myself as well.

How do I actually keep a local repository on the LAN, which can be
used by other hosts with yum & HTTP installations?

I currently use mrepo for this purpose, but it puts everything in
different folders, like so:

http://192.168.10.160/mrepo/centos5-x86_64/RPMS.updates/ - which
doesn't work well with yum updates.

So, if I simply sync an upstream repository to my server, how do I
setup Apache to serve it, with all the correct files & folders?
