If you are looking to mirror the entire CentOS Public Mirror you need 
about 60 Gigs of storage, The requirements jump a bit when there is a 
new release since we will have both tree's for a few days ( eg. 4.1 and 
4.2 are both live at the moment ), we will take 4.1 off soon.

There are somethings that we dont distribute out to public mirrors, 
purely for the sake of disk space usage. This includes : Beta / Testing 
versions of the distro's ( http://beta.centos.org ), debuginfo and 
deprecated pkgs + tree's ( http://vault.centos.org) and we also dont 
distribute DVD .iso images out ( only available via bittorrent )
