Yes, a quick web search of "centos php 5.2" will return results for the CentOS
testing repo which contains php 5.2.6.

I have never used that repo myself, I instead use Jason's "utterramblings"
repo since he also supplies a bunch of php modules also compiled for what he
releases. I don't believe CentOS do that.
