I think that Drupal is a good idea, it can be updated with yum  as it is 
included in EPEL 5 and 6 [1][2] (we can setup a CentOS specific repo 
with the additional modules), also Drupal include a very usable forum 
(maybe a little basic).

The real problem is the migration of the current CentOS website and 
forum (I think is XOOPS based) to Drupal, here is some tips [3]
