Not sure which release of Red Hat you're referring to. Advanced
Server 2 used 2.4.9 kernel, Enterprise Linux 3 used 2.4.21, RHEL4
uses a 2.6 kernel. I've not tracked the Fedoras, maybe one of them
used 2.4.18.

In AS2 /usr/share/zoneinfo was delivered by the glibc-common rpm. I
dunno if there's a newer one of that, AS2 is pretty old now. In EL3
and EL4 it's the tzdata rpm, they probably have an update for it. Or
you could pull down tzdata and tzcode yourself and build yourself a
fresh rpm. Or pull the zoneinfo bent linux package, it's a universal
doner for platforms that can run statically linked Linux elf x86
executables, or you can just unpack the cpio.bz2 and move the
usr/share/zoneinfo tree into place.
