Craig,

Install the redhat-logos package from centos and the desktop-backgrounds
package from centos these 2 packages control the look and fee of the
distribution and don't really track upstream packages at all.

You will have to force the redhat-logos install as the upstream version
has a higher number than CentOS-5 at this time:

upstream: 4.9.16-1
centos:   4.9.8-6

The CentOS version of redhat-logos does not track the upstream version
(and that is one of 2 packages that _HAS_TO_ be replaced do rebuilding
entities) so that is why yum will not install it.

We should probably release a newer version of redhat-logos to make our
package install instead as an upgrade to the upstream one, but you can
manually download the package and do:

rpm -Uvh --force <centos-version>.rpm

Thanks,
Johnny Hughes
