Just an FYI. You can't rely on version numbers with RHEL (or CentOS if
you prefer the freebie version). Red Hat establish a base release,
then continue to patch that version with bug and security fixes. The
RH 5.1.6 may be newer than you think. Not that it will ever be as up
to date as a new Ubuntu release.
