CentOS 5 is no longer supported, so it isn't distributed to the mirros
anymore.  Also, 5.4 was released in 2009, and even when CentOS5 *WAS*
supported, you should have installed 5.11, the latest release.

If you say that you've got someone telling you MUST use CentOS 5.4,
then I suggest finding another product to support. 

There's a hint as to what you would need to do, if you still want to
run an insecure and unsupportable product:

>From http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5/readme :

  This directory (and version of CentOS) is depreciated.  

  CentOS-5 is now past EOL

  You can get the last released version of centos 5.11 here:


  Please NOTE:  this is not being maintained for security since moving to Vault.
  It will have security issues, you should upgrade to a new version instead.
