None of the RHEL branches support any processors that are < i686 for the 
i386 arch.

CentOS supports i586 in centOS-3 and CentOS-4 (things not in RHEL) .. 
and only i686 in CentOS-2 and CentOS-5 (just like RHEL).

So, NO ... and i586 processor will not run CentOS-5.

doing some research ... this is a pentium mmx compatible chip, which is 
i586 ... you can use CentOS-4 on there.
