John Newbin has been working on a migration center. 
It may have some useful information; get it here:

Check out the CentOS/RedHat family tree at the bottom
of the migration center.

BTW, I recently did a desktop install RedHat 9 to
CentOS-3 migration as an experiment.  There were come
package incompatibilities that blocked the migration
via YUM, so I did "yum remove" on each package that
yum complained about.  After removing a couple of
rpm's, the migration went ahead.  Afterward, I did
"yum install" to put the packages back that I had
removed.  That seems to be a successful approach.
