    Hi all, is there anyway that I can create a local CentOS Repositoy on a Windows 2003 server? Or does it have to be a Linux server?

    Theoretically it should be possible because all you need is a webserver on your Windows system. But I'm not sure about the directory structure...

    You would need a CentOS machine to create the repos file, but as Falko said it can in theory be on any web server.
    In the newer Cent/Fedora distros, you basically put the RPMs in a directory, then run "createrepo" on it and you're done. createrepo will create the necessary files, and then you would just move them to your IIS machine.

    You can rsync one of the online repos so u will not need the createrepo tool in that case.
