I have a p520, but it's a POWER6 (currently awaiting a new system backplane, sigh -- and the RAID array may be b0rked).
When you say licensed options, do you mean AIX? If you own the hardware, you are entitled to run AIX. Any CD set will do. The POWER5+ p520 can run 5.3 onwards and some very late TLs of 5.2. However, you'll be running it straight on the metal, no LPARs.
