Availability of CentOS-5.9 for i386 and x86_64 Architectures. CentOS-5.9 is based on the upstream release EL 5.9 and includes packages from all variants including Server and Client.

The Release Notes for CentOS-5.9 can be found on-line at : http://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOS5.9 and everyone is encouraged to look through them once. Also worth browsing through are the CentOS FAQs at http://wiki.centos.org/FAQ
Welcome to the CentOS 5.9 release. CentOS is an Enterprise-class Linux Distribution derived from sources freely provided to the public by our Upstream OS Provider (UOP)1.
CentOS conforms fully with the upstream vendor's redistribution policy and aims to be 100% binary compatible. (CentOS mainly changes packages to remove upstream vendor branding and artwork.) CentOS is a Free Operating System.
CentOS 5.9 is the ninth update to the CentOS 5 distribution series. It contains a lot of bugfixes, updates and new functionality. Before reading any further we advise you to read the UOP Release Notes and Technical Notes2. The rest of this document is an addendum and primarily covers CentOS-specific issues.
