[CentOS] xorg-x11-drv-nouveau for CentOS?

Is there a way to use "Nouveau" (open source Nvidia) driver in CentOS 5 ?

"nv" seems to support only the lowest resolutions thru the dvi output (NV44
chip), and I don't like the idea of installing propiertary Nvidia drivers.
This way I came to Nouveau.

I had a look at some Fedora rpms, but they needed something CentOS
obviously doesn't have:

# rpm -ivh xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-2.1.6-1.fc8.x86_64.rpm
kernel-drm-nouveau = 10 is needed by xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-2.1.6-1.fc8.x86_64


Regards,
Timo
