Bruce, there is no such thing as RHEL 4.1. There is a RHEL4, update set 1 (a
snapshot of updates, released quarterly). But RHEL 4.1 does not exist. Nor
does RHEL 4.2, for that matter. Nor will they ever exist; the next version
of RHEL will likely be version 5 (there is no .0 there, either).
Read "CentOS 4.2" as "CentOS 4, quarterly update rollup 2". I believe the use
of a minor version number is a mistake for this reason, but that is the way
CentOS does it.
