Atheros L1 Gigabit Ethernet driver for CentOS

Err, it's been awhile since I last posted here, I'd been busy pursuing my undergrad course on Technological University of the Philippines. Since I've got most of the time on our home, I've decided to install "again" CentOS (5.5) to my desktop and configure a LAMP server.

Unfortunately, my desktop PC is equipped with P5L-MX motherboard that has a built-in Atheros LAN NIC that doesn't automatically installed on CentOS.

Here, I found a site that has the kmod-atl1 driver for my NIC. 

Just a quick reference for me in-case I've forgot where the heck could it be.

driver name: kmod-atl1-
