Not necessarily. It might load, but would probably taint the kernel. More than 
likely it would just bomb with complaints about undefined symbols or other 
kernel errors. Fedora 9 kernel is way past even Centos 5 kernel, and compiling 
the new source against the CentOS kernel would be your best bet. If you want 
to keep it working between kernel upgrades, you might need to learn to use 
either weak-updates or make a DKMS package for the driver.
