I would first check that your hardware is compatible with CentOS - I'd 
do that by going onto RedHat's site, and checking their supported 
hardware list, if its there, we have a winner, if not, then I think it 
would be acceptable to not expect it to work 100%. Because something 
works in ubuntu, or fedora, (both of which I consider "desktop" distros) 
doesn't mean that it'll work in all other versions of linux, because 
there are different kernel versions out there. Even kernel versions that 
are the same between distros, may have been compiled with different options.
