Latest one supported by Dell is 5.1. While 5.2 will run, it may not support 
some of the hardware on which EL3 was supposed to run.

Your best bet is to make sure first that 5.2 supports whatever hardware you 
have on your EL3 machines, and then to upgrade if you need something that 5.2 
has and 5.1 doesn't. Otherwise, leave it as-is.
