Installing using this parameter is not going to render your installation unsupported. It is something that is necessary because RH5 is newer then oracle 10gR2.

You could also change the oraparam.ini file to include RH5 as a certified version.

Please check metalink Notes

421308.1 - Requirements For Installing Oracle10gR2 On RHEL/OEL 5 (x86_64) 169706.1 - OracleR Database on AIXR,HP-UXR,LinuxR,Mac OSR X,SolarisR,Tru64 UnixR Operating Systems Installation and Configuration Requirements Quick Reference (8.0.5 to 11.1)

For installation instructions on RH5.

Dear John,
I know about -ignoreSysPrereqs but this is a 4node RAC with 20TB, our new production system and we can't afford loosing support. I already opened a SR and thought maybe someone int the mailing list had encountered the same problem.
Thank you very much for the hint and have a nice day Manuela
