Are you sure?  I just looked in
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.1/os/i386/CentOS/ and found
kernel-2.6.18-53.el5.i686.rpm listed whereas in centosplus
(http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.1/centosplus/i386/RPMS/), I found
kernel-2.6.18-53.1.4.el5.centos.plus.i686.rpm, which looks to me to be
newer (and has a newer build date, too).  Could you be using other
repositories that you got a newer kernel from already, or that are
reporting an older centosplus kernel?
