You can also setup a "mrepo" daemon (rpm is in repoforge repository). It 
is not hard to setup, and you can have as many separate repositories or 
mirrors of existing repositories as you like. I maintain 20+repositories 
(for CentOS 5.x and 6.x, for both i386 and x86_64: base/os, updates, 
extra, centosplus, epel, repoforge, puias, rpm-fussion, remi, ........, 
my own repositories for manually downloaded packages, what I have 
compiled, etc ). I use it so I can update and install my systems MUCH 
faster (local LAN speed) and even if my internet link is down.
