[CentOS] modern motherboard for centos-5

I think this is where I got a working version. To correct my earlier statement, I think CentOS may have forcedeth but not new enough support my particular NIC. I think I did read somewhere that 5.4 will support my chipset. Either way, to get back to the original topic, it's a modern board and it's working fine for what I wanted.

ELRepo.org has drivers for forcedeth (amongst others) for el5:
