To update to CentOS 5.5 with current updates (especially the kernel!)
would improve security much more than deactivating Sendmail. That said you
are not bound to 5.4 by any specific usecase.

What is the rationale behind deactivating Sendmail. Just curious. Or is it
the typical rant "Sendmail is insecure, see its history"?
