Moved from CentOS-5 to CentOS-4 forum.

Your system is outdated. Please try updating to the current CentOS 4.8. About getting support for a new driver, it is not going to be easy with CentOS-4. Often times, the "best" solution is to get an inexpensive network card that is known to be supported.

You may also want to consider the later and better/longer supported CentOS 5 (currently 5.5) for a fresh install, unless there is a compelling reason to stick with version 4. Since RHEL6 is at Beta-2 CentOS 6 will probably be out shortly (a few weeks to months).
