[CentOS] Best solution for TRIM on CentOS 5.x

I am planning on using solid state disks with my CentOS 5.x
systems.  Currently, I am using EXT3 for the file system.

>From what I can find, CentOS 5.x does not support TRIM
on solid state disks?  Is this correct?

Should I obtain and build the updated hdparm and use that
to trim my drives (for example, via CRON every night at midnight)?
Or should I get fstrim (updated util-linux)?

Any other suggestions on solid state drives (other than noatime
on mounts).
