It does a lot.  www.dell.com/openmanage has the marketing take on it all.
Click "Server Management" there.
Most OpenManage features work on servers running Linux.

Just a few examples of features of OpenManage Server Administrator 1.0:
* Reading status of fans, voltages, and temperature probes
* Setting threshhold values for various events (over-temp, slow or fast
fans, etc)
* Setting the hardware watchdog timer timeout value and action
* run diagnostics while OS is running
* Connect to the server management software running on the target server
using a web browser
http://docs.us.dell.com/docs/software/svradmin/ is a good resource.

There are other components to the OpenManage suite.
The Server Assistant CD which guides you through OS installs, and recognizes
Red Hat Linux CDs.
A few components, like OpenManage Array Manager, have not yet finished being
ported to Linux, but nearly everything else has.

Hope this helps.
Thanks,
Matt
