That's nothing personal, but we really don't want to send people who 
are - for example - installing via the net to a mirror which only has 
10Mbit/s if there are many faster mirrors around. Why not join the 
torrent swarm for CentOS with that machine? That would also help 
distributing it.

Thanks for wanting to help
