Easily.  I use lftp to mirror off of mirrors.kernel.org.  It's very
easy.  Copy this into a script called fc-mirror in /etc/cron.daily:

lftp -f /root/.lftp/mirrors.kernel.org

Make sure you chmod 755 that script!

Then create a file called /root/.lftp/mirrors.kernel.org and put the
following into it:

open mirrors.kernel.org
mirror -e /pub/fedora/core/updates/2 /var/ftp/pub/fedora/core/updates/2

In my example I put the DC2 updates on my local ftp server so that all
the other servers on my network can update from a local copy.  You will
want to decide where to store them.
