Nope I don't know if it will work with CentOS 6. I looked at your page. 
I don't speak Spanish but got the idea. Pretty neat.

Well now at least you got 2 :)

Have you tried getting the latest Fedora 15 live cd (or maybe even the 
latest Fedora 16 beta/TC live cd) and boot that on your server and see 
if your card is recognized? That should give you some more info. Then 
file a bug at the CentOS website or maybe directly on the Red Hat 
bugzilla: https://bugzilla.redhat.com

If your card is not recognized in the latest CentOS CR kernel and in F15 
(or F16) then you could file the bug twice (under RHEL6 and F15/F16). 
Hopefully that should get the kernel devs attention.

If you can find such a usb<->parallel cable at a local computer store 
perhaps you could try it and return it if it does not work?
