It's happened to all of us, we start a big download off on Yum only to find the mirror we've connected to is in New Zealand or something and is downloading a lot slower than it should be.

The way I change mirror currently is to ctrl + c, the problem being once yum has switched mirrors and finished the download operation, it quits before installing. This is a real pain if you're doing a big group install since the dependency resolution can take ages and you have to do it all over again. Is there a way of changing mirror WITHOUT exiting?

yum install yum-fastestmirror
won't help ctrl/c part--but might on overall download speeds?
