Indeed, just use it like this:

jigdo-lite http://mirror.tcs.ii.uj.edu.pl/jigdo/CentOS-4.3-i386-binDVD.jigdo

Please note: you either need to download both .jigdo and .template [then 
you can edit the .jigdo file to change Server URLs] in to the local 
directory and specify a normal .jigdo filename on the jigdo-lite command 
line - or - you need to specify the jigdo URL on the command line
and have all the CD's files handy.

Once jigdo-lite starts up it asks for a CDROM/DVD/other mountpoint or 
directory.  What you do is in another terminal mount a CD/DVD or whatever 
with the required files and provide this path to jigdo-lite (it might also 
be a locally kept mirror tree).  The more specific a path you provide the 
less data will need to be hashed to determine file matches.  Once those 
files are hashed and copied into the 'image-in-progress' jigdo-lite will 
return to the above question.  You may now unmount the CD/DVD in another 
You can return to the mount a CD/DVD in another terminal point above to 
continue with another CD or you can press enter and move on the Server 
URLs from the jigdo file (currently they point to the location of the 
files on my server... that's why you might want to edit the Server section 
in the .jigdo file).
Finally everything should be matched downloaded and included into the 
final image, it should be verified and everything should be ready to use.
