It's not officially supported and nor is it likely to be since CentOS 5 (and RHEL5) are in their sunset years. Support for them expires next March and el5 is in "Production Phase 3" which means no new features and/or hardware support. That's approximately 9 months until there are no new security patches etc. Far better to install a version with a longer lifespan - CentOS 6 goes EOL in 2020 and CentOS 7 in 2024.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
