 Adam posted a locking script yesterday on this mailing-list. It uses a 
 two-phase run to grab DVD-iso as well though, but you could just block 
 that part out if you dont want it.

 Regarding bandwidth it seems it is very different based on location and 
 mirrors close by. I only get ~15-60gb transfer on an average day, but 
 some servers will be much much higher.

 I dont think your 100mbit would be saturated, but if you do find 
 yourself maxed out too often you could use something like mod_cband for 
 apache to say always keep some bandwidth available.
