AFAIK, there are two different versions of procps, maintained by
two different maintainers.  One is numbered 2.x, and the other is
3.x.  The differences between the two are small, so I would test the
app with the default version before trying to install the other one.
If you need the other version, then you can use the tarball, or better,
build from source for your specific OS and library version.  I think
both versions work fine on 2.6.3 kernels; at least, they both worked
in the 2.5.x pre-releases.  I have not tried the 3.x procps with 2.6.[23].
Of course, if you change, you will no longer be able to use the automated
update procedures for ps-related rpms from redhat/fedora.
