in essence, all you need is a web server, the 'createrepo' package (to
create the repodata directory) and a customized local.repo file in
yum.repos.d

But in reality, after you install mrepo and configure (and it took, me a
day or so to get everything that wasn't included on the DVD and all of
'updates' downloaded), the benefit is that it's always lightning quick
to install/update because everything is local.

It also becomes real easy to do a new install (via http).
