If you have 64bit HW, then I would go for 64bit CentOS 5.1, it will handle
big files well. Or you can use another lightweight server just for mirrors
- like lighttpd, I have good experience with this, as mirror traffic does
not overload main server with its services.

I have In: 172,50 G   Out:  4,66 T  Total:  4,84 T  for 01.2008, but this
includes all traffic, mainly slax.org mirror. But from this you can see,
that 3TB/month is not so big amount.
