so, the latest (2.6.27) generic kernel e1000e driver supports the 82567V 
and variants, and I note that centOS 5.latest has 
/lib/modules/2.6.18-92.1.10.el5/kernel/drivers/net/e1000e/e1000e.ko but 
that STILL doesn't answer if the e1000e family driver in CetnOS 5.2 
supports this specific version chip.

the only way I'd know to determine this would be to look at the RHEL 
SRPM's and see if they built in support for /VEN_8086/DEV_10CB/ 
(assuming thats the chip you have)...

however, I *think* this does answer the question...

I don't see 0x00008086 0x000010cb here.

so, 82567V chips /are not/ recognized here (see the list of 
vendor/device ID's on http://cateee.net/lkddb/web-lkddb/E1000E.html for 
what chip is what)
