The centos-2 way:

# Red Hat Linux Advanced Server => CentOS
# Red Hat Linux => CentOS
# Red Hat, Inc. => CentOS
# Red Hat => CentOS
# www.redhat.com => www.centos.org
# RedHat/ => CentOS/

for i in `find . -type f` ; do
    echo $i
    #file $i
    TMPFILE=`mktemp /tmp/$0.XXXXXX` || exit 1
    cat $i | sed 's/Red Hat Linux Advanced Server/CentOS/g ;
                  s/Red Hat Linux/CentOS/g ;
                  s/Red Hat, Inc./CentOS/g ;
                  s/^O0cRed Hat^O/^O0aCentOS^O/g ;
                  s/Red Hat/CentOS/g ;
                  s/www.redhat.com/www.centos.org/g ;
                  s/RedHat\//CentOS\//g' > $TMPFILE
    cp $TMPFILE $i
    rm $TMPFILE
