If all you are going to use the machine for is a CVS server, then it 
doesn't matter what version you use. If 5.2.1 doesn't have any issues 
with the hardware you are going to run it on, then I'd use it. Remember, 
5.3-RELEASE is just around the corner (about a month) and it is 
scheduled to become -STABLE.
