Right, the solution will then be either dkms or kernel
version-independent kmod.  While CentOS does not provide either, the
dkms version might become available if you ask dag  :-D  Try the
rpmforge mailing list.  If you'd rather go for the kmod way, Alan
Bartlett has been offering kABI-tracking kmods for several NIC drivers
here:

I'm quite certain he will be happy to build one for sk98lin.
