The version of boost officially shipped and supported with CentOS 5.5 is 1.33.1-10 but you can get an rpm of boost-1.40.0-10 at the BlackOp repo. Install at your own risk; instructions for using the repo are at the site.

I have had success installing Boost 1.41 as follows:

yum remove boost-devel boost
yum install boost141 boost141-devel boost141-program-options boost141-regex boost141-thread boost141-system
ln -s /usr/include/boost141/boost /usr/include
