Or if we are going to use a mirror .. lets use mirror.centos.org.

Not sure about attachments for scripts though, as we might change them
on mirror.centos.org. Of course, if it changes on mirror.centos.org it
might make the directions incorrect and having a copy in the wiki might
be a good thing.  I'd go either way on that :)

I absolutely agree that mirror.centos.org should be used if possible ...
however for ISOs that is not possible ... so we should point to:


This will always point to GeoIP relevant i386 ISO servers for the user.
