Openmanage on 2400 with FC3

Hi folks,

I'm having some troubles getting Openmanage to work as I expect it to on 
my PowerEdge 2400 system.

Specifically, I am trying to install:
OMI-SrvAdmin-Dell-Web-LX-450-32-335_A00.tar.gz

I am running Fedora Core 3, with kernel version kernel-2.6.9-1.667.

I have installed jdk-1.5.0_09-fcs, along with jpackage.org 
java-1.5.0-sun-compat-1.5.0.09-1jpp

The srvadmin-install.sh installer script works OK, and everything seems 
to install correctly. I am installing CLI, web server, diagnostic, and 
storage management. I am not installing remote access.

What seems to be happening is that omawsd runs for about 5 seconds and 
then dies, leaving it's pid file behind, and I am not sure why.

I can only conclude that the "status(-2)" refers to the unexpected 
presence of the pid file in /var/run. Blow it away and it starts, but 
dies after about 5 seconds.

If I hit https://pd1:1311 in this several second window, I do get a 
certificate message.

The SCSI parity error seems like it happens when the process dies, but I 
don't really get why these would be related.
