I'm successfully using Dropbox on couple of CentOS 5.4 machines, but
in a headless configuration.  I followed the instructions on the
Dropbox Wiki[1].  I concur with Joseph that it looks like the RPM is
just the Nautilus plugin.  Since I don't use that I'm not sure how
compatible it is with CentOS.
