 From the os directory something like this should produce jigdo 
files/templates for all associated iso files.

for arch in i386 x86_64
     rsync -a --delete --delete-excluded \
         --exclude 'repodata/' --exclude 'EULA' \
         --exclude 'GPL' --exclude 'NOTES/' \
         --exclude 'RELEASE-NOTES*' --exclude 'RPM-GPG-KEY*' \
         --link-dest=../$arch/ $arch/ ${arch}.jigdo/

     for iso in $(find ../isos/i386/ -name '*.iso' -size +100000)
         jigdo-file make-template --force -i $iso \
             -j ${iso%.iso}.jigdo -t ${iso%.iso}.template \
             --label CentOS=$arch.jigdo/ \
             --uri CentOS=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5/os/$arch/ \

After the files/templates are created they can be moved to a 
different/better location as well as updating the Servers section if 

Hope this helps someone,
