hi,

i have some finished centos 5 images for linux vserver:
http://www.cryptronic.de/wiki/Vserver_en:images_for_openvcp

to get yum working:

edit /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo

and replace $releasever and $basearch with hardcoded values eg
$relesevar: 5
$basearch: i386

after that yum works quite fine.

best regards
