All the drivers should be in the kernel. Is there anything particular that doesn't work?

It just seems slow, especially on the internet. I'm making the assumption since vista needs mobo drivers, centos would need them too. Is this a false assumption?
The mobo has intel P43 chipset, and ICH10 southbridge. I am using a video card, evga geforce 8400

Linux is not Windows. All needed drivers , at least for most components, come with kernel. So if you need newer drivers you need a newer kernel. AFAIK Red Hat ports back many drivers for there stable kernels, so you should have all the drivers you need in the kernel. One exception is your graphics card, if you want 3D acceleration with similar performance to Windows you should install the proprietary drivers. Installation of them is explained here.
