If you just interested in just getting updates for the system then this
forum thread is probably what your looking for.


The following covers the conversion of WBEL 3 (another RHEL rebuild) to
CentOS 3.


I did this migration remotely to a live system about 150miles away from
me and it went off without a hitch.  The main thing your going to need
is the latest version of Yum for Centos 3.5 since RHEL does not include

After the live migration is done all you need to do to keep the system
updated is "yum update" when new updates are announced on the list.
