Thanx John,

I already tried soft linking bash to ash, but I think that the
installer is looking for ash in the RPM's database, since I'm
installing from rpm.

I also read through that article, and that's where I also came to the
conclusion that it may not be available for CentOS 5, but wasn't sure.
