    ELRepo : kmod-atl1c

    Download if you're using 32-bit
    Index of /linux/elrepo/el5/i386/RPMS

    Download if you're using 64-bit
    Index of /linux/elrepo/el5/x86_64/RPMS

    I've never used CentOS or other enterprise system, so I'm not too familiar, but...

    This link should be the driver you want.
    http://elrepo.org/linux/elrepo/el5/x...epo.x86_64.rpm

    Download to a flash drive and transfer over to your machine. (Or do you have a working wireless connection?)

    Place the file into your home folder and install with
    Code:
    su -c 'rpm -ivh ~/kmod-atl1c-1.0.0.11-1.el5.elrepo.x86_64.rpm'
    By the way, is there a particular reason you chose an enterprise distro over a more user friendly desktop oriented distro? CentOS, RHEL, and such use much older (though in theory therefore more stable) software, but this means hardware support, especially for newer hardware, isn't as good as you would find in the latest desktop distros.
