Good question. Here is what I have done so far:
I ran the beta installer on a 1.83 GHz Core Duo model. The system
booted and the installer ran. I did an install with "linux
askmethod" from an NFS share with the CentOS 5 isos. I did a default
workstation install. The installer ran flawlessly. The graphics
displayed correctly and the trackpad worked perfectly. The installer
ran. When I rebooted after the install, the system said "Missing
operating system" and stopped. I was able to boot disc 1 in rescue
mode and mount the new installation in mnt.
I suspect there is some problem with the boot partition. I am trying
to install 4.4 now, just for fun. During the install, the installer
complained that the drive had a "gbt" partition and would have to be
reformatted for CentOS to be installed. I take this as a good sign.
If the 4.4 install works, I'll try the 5.0 beta again.
I will report back.
