I suggest you contact the vendor to verify whether or not CentOS 5.1
and 5.2 and onwards are supported. I suspect if they support something
as generic as "RHEL 5 ES" and they support CentOS 5.0 then they'll
support all versions of CentOS 5.0. Since CentOS 5.2 is based off
of RHEL ES 5.2.

If not, then I suggest starting a subscription of RHEL 5 ES, or
pick another software vendor that'll support you, or support
yourself. I don't recall having any issues getting support from
VMWare for ESX running CentOS guest VMs.
