The 2940 has been around for a while, so CentOS 5 should easily see it.
If you are not sure, try booting from the CD/DVD, then, when you can get
to a tty window, type: lspci
See if CentOS 5 is able to see the controller, either as 2940 or aic

If lspci doesn't work, try dmesg |more and look for the scsi controller in
the listing. Same things to look for.
