I have tried asking questions on IBM's support fora, the answer is:

CentOS? Not supported. Get RHEL3 or RHEL4.

Some of the install scripts of IBM's software checks the contents
of /etc/redhat-release so I had to modify this file into:

# cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS release 5 (Final)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release 4

to get it to install the software (on a CentOS 5 machine).
