For centos4, no. The update has been in centos for a while now.
For centos3, run 'yum update' as the update was (until recently) in
the fastrack repository. It is now in the general update repo, and
available mainstream.

For centos2, I'm not sure. I don't have any systems currently running it.

You can test the distros by using 'zdump -v /etc/localtime | grep
2007' and verify that the dates are correct.

During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.
