	I hate to post just to say "me too", but this one is also important to 
us.  I don't feel so bad when I remember that if the source were 
available we'd do it ourselves :)
	I also would love to see a stripped down distribution of the omsa snmp 
tools as described previously on this list (dellomsa, dellomsa-drivers, 
ServerAdministrator, and MIBs).  The full omsa is too heavy for us to 
like to run on an already pegged server, and too bulky to feel safe 
running it all from a security standpoint.
