Yeah, though OMSA installs them while booting up, when I run it from a CD.

I did try to install it a couple months ago, and found (and reported to
Dell) that it was looking for certain RHEL specific files & locations. It
seemed to be a 32-bit, and though I tried to debug an install on a 64-bit
server, it would fail, though I installed enough to make it appear to
install correctly.

I'm leaning towards keeping it on the CD, so I don't have to deal with
installing/upgrading on our Dells. Sorry I can't help more.
