    You're probably running a kernel off the CentOS plus repository:

    I don't see any issue with having that kernel..

    Here is what CentOS says about the repository for CentOS Plus:

    http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalRes...ies/CentOSPlus

    The kernel version you're running was released by RHEL on 09/29 which was marked as "moderate" and fixes some security holes + bugs with the kernel:

    http://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2009-1455.html

    The latest version given by CentOS (normal repositories) is kernel-2.6.18-128.1.1.

    That kernel will be fine for you. No issues

    Plus includes some additional features. Nothing to be worried about.

    It is okay to stay with 2.6.18-164.2.1.el5.plus as the recent security flaw "NULL pointer dereference " is fixed on this kernel, but it is always good to compile and boot to the latest available kernel
    current stable one is 2.6.31.3
