CentOS-2 has all the patches up to and including Update 4 (Q2 2004). 
There may also be patches from after that update.  Anything which is not 
included on the CD is in the yum repository so running yum update will 
always make sure that you are running the latest, and update you to the 
next Q update when it is released.

As for your problem, I am not sure what you mean by 'CPU cycling' but 
check using the usual tools to see what is going on.  top and vmstat 
will be good places to start.  Often internal kernel work which is not 
process specific will drive up the load average without a process 
showing up in top.  Network traffic is one example and I think pipes 
between processes can also cause this.  vmstat will show your rate of 
swap in and swap out which is very useful.
