Some sources say to:
Aquire the 5.6 repository information from the RedHat website, then do
# yum update
Although the RHEL documentation, albeit not very clear, says to use the CD/installer and select the "upgrade" option. See Common Tasks (chapter 24).
Have a look at CentOS 5.6 Release-Notes - Known Issues. The same should be true for RHEL 5.6.
Since you are upgrading from 5.5 (and NOT an earlier version) to 5.6
yum update after
Should be enough. The described iSCSI-client-bug might apply to you.
