I wrote a pretty simple howto for redhat 9 - centos 3.1 a while back.
I know of a few that have gone from 7.3 to centos 3.1, with this
howto, so perhaps it may help in your case. Correct me if I am wrong
but centos 2 is based off or redhat 7.2, so it may work. Of course, i
wouldn't try this on a production box first off:
