RHEL 5 U10 will probably work, but probably won't be techincally supported.  Sometimes release notes  say "update X or later", but even in these cases I have had Support saying a certain later update is not supported as it is not specifically mentioned.  In essence, if a update is not mentioned, it has not been tested and if it has not tested, whether it will work cannot be verified.

6.0.3 and 6.1 supports update 9.

The LBN says 6.0.1 and 6.0.3 is supported with update 10, but strangely does not mention 6.0.2.
