It is EOLed. That is all fixes to 5.2 are 5.3.

So there is little choice unless you take on the whole management issue.

BTW, I had some systems that would simply NOT do an install with the 5.2 
boot CD. I HAD to install with 5.1 then upgrade them to 5.2. So I only 
recently finally pulled my local 5.1 repo.
