I just recently installed a G33 based board with centos-5 (x86_64). If the 
board has an ich9r the sata part it easy (use ahci in bios). My install 
hanged unless I passed acpi=off or pci=nommconf (the latter the real fix).

After install I had to build my own e1000 from the intel page to get the 
onboard GigE to work and pci=nommconf is still needed (but does not cause any 
negative side effects that I know of).

All this for an Intel DG33TL board.

Good luck,
