What you can do is install python 2 from source code and keep the version Redhat
insists on. The existing python version is in /usr/bin and the source installed 
version will be placed in /usr/local/bin .

The other option is trying a better Linux distribution like Debian which currently
has bother 1.5.2 and 2.1 available.

thoroughly miniscule proportions.
