I'm getting ready to upgrade a production system to a virtualized CentOS 2.1 instance.  Yes, really, 2.1, as an app (non-opensource) running on that production system needs libc5.  Yes, really, libc5, and CentOS 2.1 is the latest dist I've found with libc5.  Client has no need or funds to rewrite app or convert to open source app, and is happy with what works.

Production system is running Red Hat Linux 5.2.  No, not RHEL 5.2; RHL (boxed set, 1998 vintage) 5.2.  Runs like Gump.  Not net connected, fortunately.
