Not necessarily. It might load, but would probably taint the kernel. More than
likely it would just bomb with complaints about undefined symbols or other
kernel errors. Fedora 9 kernel is way past even Centos 5 kernel, and compiling
the new source against the CentOS kernel would be your best bet. If you want
to keep it working between kernel upgrades, you might need to learn to use
either weak-updates or make a DKMS package for the driver.
