OMSA 4.5 isn't expected to work on FC5...

Just to make it "simple" we think.

srvadmin-* packages aren't available in the FC* directories, because
FC* aren't OMSA-supported OSs. The srvadmin-* packages are in the
RHEL directories because those are OMSA-supported OSs.
There's not a lot of experience reported on this list of people making
OMSA work on FC. What we posted in the repos for RHEL are the
official OMSA RPMs (without modification). If there's evidence we can
do likewise for FCx, I'd be open to it. But I think it's unlikely to
work on FCx given the current kernel dependencies. This may get
better when OMSA 5.0 is released of course.
