If you know the correct format of your timezone, put it in this file 
replacing the new york entry

failing that you could, in your startup script put somthing like this:
TZ='Australia/Brisbane' ; export TZ
(of cource replace mine with your timezone)

CentOS is essentially RH, just minor mods so I doubt it uses anything 
weird, however its base server install package list leaves a lot to be 
desired, and does omit key packages.
