I maintain a local network install mirror for the 100-odd Fedora users in my LAN. For FC6 I just used to mirror the core and extras directories. However Fedora 7's new release structure is confusing me. What is the difference between the rpms in Everything and Fedora? Do I still have to get Fedora if I mirror Everything?

Basically, which directories should I mirror?

Just mirror Everything. Fedora folder has a subset which matches the older Fedora Core releases.

I am downloading from the closest mirror now. It is damn slow. I don't know the problem.
The data transfer rate is something like 60KB/Sec.

It is post release, mirrors can be busy. Try another if it's too slow.
