Bruce, there is no such thing as RHEL 4.1.  There is a RHEL4, update set 1 (a 
snapshot of updates, released quarterly).  But RHEL 4.1 does not exist.  Nor 
does RHEL 4.2, for that matter.  Nor will they ever exist; the next version 
of RHEL will likely be version 5 (there is no .0 there, either).

Read "CentOS 4.2" as "CentOS 4, quarterly update rollup 2".  I believe the use 
of a minor version number is a mistake for this reason, but that is the way 
CentOS does it.
