yeah, thats what I use.  my cron job looks like...

     lftp -c 'open ftp://mirrors.kernel.org && lcd /export/mirror && 
mirror --continue --verbose=1 -x ia64 -x s390 -x s390x -x alpha -x SRPMS 

that gets all releases, but not s390 or alpna or itanium.  add -x 5\* to 
lose the 5.x stuff.

oh, it appears I'm using ftp not http... I believe thats because I got 
inconsistent results with http when I switched source repos
