Interestingly, or not; perhaps, but a simple tabulation of the replies
in this thread indicates the following kernels:
2.6.25-gentoo-r6 kernel (64-bit)

I think I'm going to abandon CentOS 5.2, since it only has the
2.6.18-kernel, even with updates. I wanted to escape the constant
Fedora upgrade cycle, but obviously, the chipset doesn't have
appropriate support in 2.6.18.
My old Celeron D 340 (2.93 GHz) with XvMC (GeForce 5200) is
outperforming this system on HD although it can't handle HD at
acceptable levels. That's driving me nuts.
I read that Mythbuntu has a Live CD option - might be a good way to
test the chipset on a different operating system or kernel without
having to commit to a full installation.
