Thank you, Andrey. The HDF-EOS file (MOD09A1) and the projection
information is now recognized by gdalinfo. 

Unfortunately, gdalwarp still fails to reproject this MODIS data
accurately. I looked into Charles Wivell's suggestion that this might be
related to confusion between geodetic and geocentric latitudes. I used
the +geoc parameter in proj4, but I still have incorrectly reprojected

I'm at a dead-end. If anyone figures out a fix to this, please post!
Thanks for the responses.

Best regards,
