Here is what I named mine

centos-5-SixtyFourBit_5.5.1_amd64.tar.gz


and it works 

notice the 5.5 you have I have 5.5.1 instead 

:-)

If it is easier I can make it available for you

The reason why I asked what is wrong is because I followed the description of the post and changed the name to centos-5-default_5.5_amd64.tar.gz but it still doesn't work. So, is the format of the syntax wrong?
