Seems pretty straight forward according to:


[root at mail ~]# uname -a
Linux mail.dot.echo.id.au 2.6.32-504.8.1.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Jan 28 21:11:36 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[root at mail ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS release 6.6 (Final)
[root at mail ~]# modinfo ppa
filename:       /lib/modules/2.6.32-504.8.1.el6.x86_64/kernel/drivers/scsi/ppa.ko
license:        GPL
srcversion:     65ADE3614FE37AC1041AEB2
depends:        parport
vermagic:       2.6.32-504.8.1.el6.x86_64 SMP mod_unload modversions
[root at mail ~]#

Should be plug and play ;-)
