there's no such thing as '5.1 updates'.

there is centos5, and centos5 updates, and the current quarterly(?) 
rollup release of those updates bundled, which is currentyl known as 5.2

any centos 5 release (5, 5,1, 5.2), when you install all pending updates 
becomes 5.2 plus whatever updates have been released since 5.2 was 
rolled up.
