I tried following Jason's instructions on his site as well as bits I've found on the mailing list archive, yet still no go:
RH7.2, 2.4.18-18.7.x, PE1550
After installing the dellomsa-drivers rpm, then modifying dcesm.c, and executing './dellosmaesm start', I get:
[root at web01 bin]# ./dellomsaesm start
Building device driver for running kernel: [ OK ]
Loading Server Administrator Device Drivers: [FAILED]
See /var/tmp/esm.map for output from insmod.
See Dynamic Kernel Support in the Server Administrator readme.txt file.
[root at web01 tmp]# cat esm.map
/lib/modules/2.4.18-18.7.x/misc/esm.o: kernel-module version mismatch
/lib/modules/2.4.18-18.7.x/misc/esm.o was compiled for kernel version 2.4.18-17.7.x
while this kernel is version 2.4.18-18.7.x.
I was under the assumptiong that the dynamic kernel support would build the driver for this kernel as well?
I'm sure I've done something stupid, any help?

No worries; I'm glad the install instructions are there! They kept me from doing my headers hack that I was worried about (earlier post). I just mentioned it b/c I know lots of people on this list have pointed to those instructions, and the additions from the forum are pretty key.
