This obviously seems to be a point of confusion. Lets get the correct
information and put it in the FAQ. Can someone confirm or deny this
CentOS 3.1 = RHEL 3 U2
CentOS 3.3 = RHEL 3 U3

Patches for U3 should apply to U2 with the exception of patches which
have other dependencies from U3. The RPM should know about them and not
install unless you satisfy the dependencies... but the question still
remains, why not just use all of U3?
(Note: I am not very familiar with CentOS3 but with CentOS2 the update
number is a non issue, just install all the available updates and you
will have an up to date system. I don't know why RHEL3 make it so
