Probably not what you want to hear, but after days of trying I totally 
failed to get the M3N78-PRO network card working with Centos 5.2. I 
figured out the sata solution too, but never got the onboard sound 
working either.

In the end I used Fedora 9, sata, network and sound worked out the box.

If you can figure out what drivers the fedora kernel uses you may be 
able to transplant them into Centos.

good luck
