[CentOS-mirror] dvd rsync instructions

The CentOS folks have to approve you for downloading the DVD ISOs 
directly from them, and then there's a super secret rsync address you 
use, that I think is IP restricted.  Talk to one of the folks at CentOS.

Alternatively, you can download via rsync from one of the mirrors that 
offers rsync access and has the DVD ISOs.  I think the kernel.org guys 
have the ISOs, but you need to talk to them to get access.  I mention 
them cause they probably have the fattest (and phattest) pipes of us all.

Else, just visit 
http://www.centos.org/modules/tinycontent/index.php?id=13 and find 
someone who offers Rsync and dvd isos.
