Sometimes it is just easier to "run what works" then to try and beat CentOS 
into submission.
That is the biggest negative with an enterprise distro. They just don't run 
100% on the latest hardware all the time. That is why when you buy true server 
hardware they don't have the newest chipsets and the latest network and video.
