As far as disk usage goes, my current minicpan shows:

du -sh minicpan
1.1G	minicpan

So, it's much smaller than I actually thought it was.  Getting it set  
up initially is actually quite simple.  Something like this would put  
the files in /root/minicpan:

/usr/local/bin/minicpan -l /root/minicpan -r ftp://CPAN.mirror.rafal.ca/pub/CPAN/
