Google Chrome cannot be installed in CentOS 5.5 due to lsb requirements

Google Chrome Beta (5.0.375.29 beta) cannot be installed in CentOS 5.5 due to a dependency that cannot be meet. On a freshly installed CentOS, trying to install Chrome using rpm -i google-chrome-beta_current_i386.rpm spits out the following:

[root@localhost soft]# rpm -i google-chrome-beta_current_i386.rpm warning: google-chrome-beta_current_i386.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 7fac5991 error: Failed dependencies: lsb >= 3.2 is needed by google-chrome-beta-5.0.375.38-46659.i386 xdg-utils is needed by google-chrome-beta-5.0.375.38-46659.i386

Unfortunately, the latest version of "lsb" that comes with CentOS 5.5 is redhat-lsb-3.1-12.3.EL.el5.centos.i386.

~ts :(
