But, read that table carefully. It says "CentOS 5" not "CentOS 5.0"
"CentOS 5" tracks the current point release and is now equivalent
to "CentOS 5.2".  Running "CentOS 5.0" means you do not receive any
updates from a subsequent point release and are locked into the
package versions that were current just before the release of
CentOS 5.1.
