If you are talking about centos you have two things to consider:
a) RHES/Centos 5 already comes with php 5.
b) RHES/Centos 4 does not and will not have due to the way things are
planned.   Since PHP5 has some issues with backward compatibility they will
not replace the package.

It is available for CentOS 4.x in the CentOS Plus repository. (Look in the
main CentOS yum config in /etc/yum.repos.d/ to enable it.)

Also it is available in the Red Hat Web Application stack:


And there is also a "Beta" channel which I believe is available with a
normal entitlement?

I see PHP 5.1.2 there.

You might also want to check if there are any bindings to MySQL 5.x as well. I seem to remember having to upgrade both. (Not a big deal. Helps if you read the upgrade docs. "dumpmsql --all" is your friend.)
