lsdev is part of the procinfo package, which doesn't appear to be
provided with any version of RHEL or CentOS.  However, it is included
with Fedora, so you should be able to take the procinfo SRPM from
Fedora Core 3 or 4 and rebuild it for CentOS 4.2.

FYI, an easy way to check for which package provides what (rather than
using Google) is
yum provides lsdev
