You can try  pressing CTRL+BACKSPACE which might cycle thru the available resolutions. Or just go to the console by pressing CTRL+F1 (or is it CTRL+ALT+F1?).

What other settings do you have on the ESX for this guest?

Can you repeat problem with CentOS 5.11?
Sadly RHEL 5.2 is out of all support options
