Correct, to get the display functionality to work, your first two steps are
sufficient. The other steps are only needed if you want to allow users to use
your local mirror as a data source inside of Galaxy. If you don't want users to
be able to use your local mirror as a data source, which may have faster
loading times or additional data loaded that does not exist in UCSC's public
site, you can safely remove the entry from your tool_conf.xml file without
affecting the ability for your users to send files for display.
Thanks for using Galaxy,
