yep, one would think this would work out great, but there's perhaps a clarification needed, -the distro dir should look like this in the end result right?:


or should I be higher up?

you can usually just FTP to these mirrors and grab the appropriate path 
from there.  in this case you can actually goto 
mirrors.kernel.org/centos via http as well.  then drill down to the 
branch that you want to sync and you should be able to use that path for 
your mirror switch.
