I am responding to digest issue 36, sorry if this breaks the thread.
I also liked the simplicity of dellmgr/megamgr and have not found a
direct replacement for the PERC 5. What I have been using is LSI's
Storage Manager on Dell 2900's with the PERC 5/i. You can find it here;
Click the Support and Downloads tab and scroll down for the Storage
Manager for Linux. I have installed it on several RHEL ES v4 systems.
If memory serves me right, I think it was a Java app. It did what I
needed it to do, YMMV
