It should be sufficient to install the CentOS-3 GPG key and point yum 
CentOS-3 updates.  There is no need to reinstall when migrating from 
WB/RHEL3 etc to CentOS-3.

If you want the boxes to look like CentOS-3 there are a few RPM which 
you can install from CentOS-3.

initscripts (i think you might need this one)

If someone wants to keep a complete list of tasks I will add it to my 
Migration pages (which have been a bit neglected).

You might want to check my "Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 AS/ES/WS x86 
Live Errata Update to CentOS-2" notes before you begin.
