Are you talking about using CentOS as an iSCSI server and
having ESX talk to it via iSCSI client? Or are you talking
about running CentOS inside ESX and using an iSCSI client
from within the guest VM?

I have done the latter, and have used OpenFiler as an iSCSI
server for ESX's iSCSI client, and both worked fine no special
options needed.
