I went through the different  mirrors and was unable to locate the ISO as it is stated as deprecated or unsupported, is there any plans to fix this issue in 5.6 or rather 6.x release. It appears that the latest build from Centos was built back in may, lots of bugs have emerge since them including this one relating to a kernel panic. Please advise in the location of 5.4, i am willing to try it.

This is not a CentOS bug. As stated in the KB articles quoted in the bug report:


the patch is in the kernel-2.6.18-194.3.1 and onward. CentOS/RHEL 5.5
comes with kernel-2.6.18-194 which has the bug.  RHEL-6's kernel is
much newer at 2.6.32-71, so it does not have this bug.

Therefore to get around this issue, as suggested in one of the KB
articles, you first install CentOS *5.4* and then update it to the
current kernel thus skipping the problematic kernel.
