Just as a warning - when installing the mirrors for Waldorf I invested
quite some time to get the newest version of mirror scripts running
without success.  Probably I was tracking a bug in Perl itself.  After
a downgrade to an oder version (2.1 or 2.2) the mirror was working immedialty.
In soe parts the mirror software is a really evil hack that makes more
assumptions about UNIX systems  thatn it should.  Another possible problem
is that mirror is a real memory hog.
