Hello,

  Sander Keemink has done the most work in porting the OMSA 5.0.0 to 
debian. I only made some changes in creating the debian packages.

You can get the package from:
   ftp://ftp.sara.nl/pub/outgoing/dell

There are 3 packages for Debian Sarge. There is a backport to Sarge for 
openipmi tools else omsa 5.0.0 did not work. So you have to build a 
kernel with ipmi modules enabled.

There is NO WARRANTY and NO DOCUMENTATION.

We have installed it on our 1850 cluster and everything works for us.

After installation run:
   omreport chassis
