1) track down the driver for your hardware and hack it into
   the installation by hand. I've had to do this on several
   occasions for newer hardware(well not since CentOS 4.4)
2) Buy from a vendor that tests/certifies with CentOS/RHEL
   so you know it works when it arrives.

I highly suggest #2, less pain all around. I'd only suggest
#1 for really experienced linux admins. #1 can take a significant
amount of time/testing.
