[CentOS] Recommendation(s)

    It looks like I may have to drop back to a 32-bit version of the OS 
due to some non-resolvable library issues for the software I'm 
attempting to compile, and want to ask, how far back can I go with 
CentOS where I'd not lose too much functionality of the 4.1 version.  
Essentially what I need is the equivalent of RHES 3.  The other thing 
I'd thought about would be to install the needed gnu library, but in a 
non-standard place, like /home/sam or some other user directory.  Since 
the software only needs this at runtime and not during linking, I don't 
see what It would bother.  Given that idea, how would I use RPM to 
install that library ?  I read the man page, but did not seen much 
option for installing to a non-std location, and not have the system 
actually "recognize" it as being there.
