With all versions for all archs, I'm using 135G disk. That includes the 
DVD images.

Here's how it breaks out (with zeros removed):
23 root at mirror:/mirror/pub/centos# du -chsx *
5.6G    2.1
33G     3.8
15G     3.9
45G     4.5
36G     5.0
133G    total

I transfer about 120-150G per day (sometimes a little more, sometimes a 
lot less). mrtg says I have averaged 12mbit/sec over the last six months.
