PE2650 Snmp/lm_sensors

Dell's OMSA includes a daemon (dcsnmp32d) that communicates with 
the standard UCD snmp agent, providing all the fan speeds, temps, 
etc. via the Dell MIB entries.  

In other words, load OMSA and it will Just Work.  
Don't bother with lm_sensors; it doesn't work with Dell hardware. 
(N.B.: You will need to be running some fairly recent version of 
RedHat, or else go through various gymnastics in order to get 
Dell OMSA installed and running.)
