you may want to direct them to the "CentOS Mirroring HOWTO" page:


In a nutshell, it seems that your primary complaint with the mirror  
system concerns its inability to direct you to mirrors of which it is  
unaware.  Fair enough; I imagine if you can persuade admins of local  
mirrors to register themselves with the CentOS team, the mirror  
system will direct you to them.


If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an  
improbable fiction. - Fabian, Twelfth Night, III,v
