I could find no precompiled driver that worked. However, I found GNU-GPL code for one that works 
nicely on the Point Clark Networks' site. The instructions are for ClearOS 5.4 which is similar to 
RHEL/Centos. 

Roll your own driver with instructions and vt1211.c code at

http://www.grassmere-productions.pointclark.net/vt1211/vt1211.txt

Install kernel-devel and start at Paragraph #3.

Works nice on my little M10000 mini-itx epia box.  Until elrepo or Redhat or Centos supports a 
vt1211.ko  for RHEL/Centos 5.4, you will have the privilege of recompiling and reinstalling it every time 
you update the kernel ( about a 3 minute adventure ). 

regards,
