It is my understanding that there is no upgrade path available from Red 
Hat 9 to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, so I doubt you will find anything of 
that nature in the CentOS installer either.

It does seem a little odd since RH9 is so compatible with RHEL3.  You 
should be able to find more information at redhat.com.
