[CentOS] Upgrading Python with Yum

I have an old version of Python (2.4.3) and I'm trying to upgrade (to 2.6);
however, when I try
yum upgrade python
it tells me that it's already got the latest and greatest...presumably of
2.4.3. I've tried
yum list python
and it only gives me the 2.4.3. Are there no others? Do I have to build from
a tarball? I'm surprised I don't find a version of Python 3 either. In what
folder are the rpms kept?
