JFYI, it seems to be impossible to install their httpd package in Owl.
Trying to meet the dependencies (downloading the appropriate RPMs, guessing
what's where etc) I ended up with the following command:

rpm -Uvh httpd-2.0.52-41.ent.4.centos4.i386.rpm
httpd-suexec-2.0.52-41.ent.4.centos4.i386.rpm db4-4.2.52-7.3.el4.i386.rpm
expat-1.95.7-4.i386.rpm apr-0.9.4-24.9.i386.rpm
apr-util-0.9.4-22.el4.i386.rpm libgssapi-0.8-1.i386.rpm
krb5-libs-1.3.4-62.el4.i386.rpm openldap-2.2.13-12.el4.i386.rpm
cyrus-sasl-2.1.19-14.i386.rpm cyrus-sasl-md5-2.1.19-14.i386.rpm

As such it says:

error: Failed dependencies:
        /etc/mime.types is needed by httpd-2.0.52-41.ent.4.centos4 is needed by (installed) db4-utils-4.3.29-owl5 is needed by (installed) pam-1.1.0-owl1 is needed by (installed) perl-5.8.8-owl5 is needed by (installed) postfix-2.4.13-owl1
        db4 = 4.3.29-owl5 is needed by (installed) db4-devel-4.3.29-owl5
        db4 = 4.3.29-owl5 is needed by (installed) db4-utils-4.3.29-owl5

If I replace -U with -i, it still complains about /etc/mime.types, which
I've got no idea where's packed (certainly it doesn't help just to place
mime.types in /etc, it needs to come from a package), and if I try -ivh
--nodeps, it refuses to downgrade db4.

So, the recommendation about CentOS packages should perhaps be reconsidedred.
