This is weird ... isn't there something weird about your 
configuration? NFS, SELinux, screwed up rights on /var/log -- 
I have never seen the error like this.

I talked with Dave Airlie about this and his conclusion was that 
most likely RHEL/CentOS 5.2 won't work with your card, but 5.3 
should. If you are willing to try Beta, then it should be 
available from 

(of course, there is no support, it is beta, no upgrades, 
yadayadayada).  For more information see announcement at 
(it should be released January 2009).
