Facebook has a great mirror site for the CentOS ISO’s.


Another fast mirror is the USC Linux Users Group Mirror:  http://mirrors.usc.edu/pub/linux/distributions/centos/5.5/


This has been one of the fastest mirrors I have found for CentOS.  It’s nice to see a social networking site giving back to the Linux community.

If you access the Internet through a proxy, then you’re out of luck…  Another option is to create a mirror server on your LAN.

  1. Just tried it with a CentOS netinstall. It is fast!

  2. I like NetInstall best, it’s very handy!

  3. facebook seems no longer to host any image

  4. They only host the latest version. I updated the link on my site to point to CentOS 5.5. Another fast mirror I’ve been using is USC. http://mirrors.usc.edu/pub/linux/distributions/centos/5.5/
