[CentOS] Error: Module Microcode does not exist... at boot time

I have just installed Centos 5.0 from DVD. I have also run the software
updates and I think everything is up to date.
The motherboard is a Gigabyte GA945GM-S2 with an Intel E2140 processor.
At boot time if I select show details - there is one error shown "in
red", Like this:
Applying Intel CPU microcode update. FATAL: Module microcode not found.
ERROR: Module microcode does not exist in /proc/module [FAILED]
The boot still seems to go ok - and the system seems to work - but I
guess it is probably using some subset of the CPU instruction set.
Can anyone tell me exactly what this means - and why the module is
missing. The CPU I am using is fairly new - so I am not surprised that
the Centos 5.0 release might not recognise it - but I would have thought
that updates might have fixed it by now.
