Personally, I think cobbler overkill if all you want to do is have a 
local copy of the CentOS repo for updates and occasional 

I just mirror the os/ and updates/ trees (about 20G for CentOS 5.4). I 
point lighttpd at the root of the mirror tree, enable directory 
listings, and push a standard CentOS-Base.repo file that points to the 
local mirror to all my CentOS machines.
