I thought it required perl 5...

Mirroring most of ftp.debian.org mine only consumes about 3-4 megs total.
Maybe it's because I've split it up into many packages of smaller size.  But
I think this could easily run on a system with 8 megs of ram.

I recommend this program.  The man pages are pretty descriptive, it has a
fairly easy to learn interface -- I had my first mirror running in one day.

P.S. As a matter of fact, check out my mirror of ftp.debian.org at
	aij.st.hmc.edu   :)
