The info is on this page: https://github.com/joyent/node/wiki/Installing-Node.js-via-package-manager  Look for RHEL/CentOS/Scientific Linux 6 and follow the instructions.  You do have to add another repository to get Node.js.  It is not in the 'standard' repositories.

Well you're running RHEL5 and npm package is not available for that in epel repositories
Here isthe process you can try to get rpm of needed package.

use EPEL source RPM... that is the easy way...
for other packages you can try centos/rhel first.
