When I get around to Veryfing it working i'll post my findings to here
in the docs list for you.It is your How To you can add the the
appropiate notes on it [my opinion]. You can leave it, should work with
5 because you can manually add the hosts, ipaddys and etc. Maybe someone
else could give an opinion also on that. 

I'd be willing to bet you could copy the cent 4 config files to cent 5
for that aspect of it to work. The actual package makes the kernel image
also.  So it would run the cent 4 image on all the clients. If i'm wrong
please point it out someone?

I do know the rpm package will install and start up on the desktop.
That's as for as I got with it as something came up I had to take on in
the process.
