Dana -

This is really as simple as grabbing a tzdata source RPM, rebuilding it on
one of your RHL-8 boxes and installing the resultant binary RPM and best 
reboot to ensure all services are gracefully stopped/restarted to allow 
change to be effective. Then you can test with either zdump or rolling the
date forward/back.

I did a slew of our Psyche release boxes this past week and they seem to 
fine - without upgrading glibc which really needs to be done, but i will
wait to just upgrade the box or retire as time allows. If you really need, 
can supply a source or even a binary RPM you can use
for those rhl-8 systems.
