This would be extremely unfortunate.  One thing that I haven't been able 
to run on Centos5 is Google's Chrome.  As more and more sites ditch 
flash in favor of javascript+HTML5, this is becoming really important.  
Firefox is good, but  Chrome is much faster.

Chrome running an LTSP5  local app would be even better.
