Version 5.1 is no longer being maintained by IBM; we were some
displeased when we heard when support offerings were expiring :-(.
Fortunately, we already had plans in place for a migration to 5.3.

I have to agree that even 4.3 is "really rather old" now.

Looking at IBM's "support lifecycle" list...

AIX version   Available    Support Withdrawn
  5.1         May 2001      April 2006
  5.2         Oct 2002      Sept 2008
  5.3         Aug 2004      unannounced, presumably late 2010...

I'd guess that 4.3 fell out of support in late 2004.
