OK, I learnt from this link 
(http://www.dell.com/downloads/global/products/pedge/en/850_specs.pdf) 
that IPMI is supported on PE850 :) and from this other 
(http://www.dell.com/downloads/global/products/pedge/en/1800_brief.pdf) 
that it is not on SC1420 :(

My next question: is there a tool I can use on SC1420 to retrieve system 
information such as controller status and so by means of CLI?
My OS is Debian Sarge. Can anybody give me some clue?


Again TIA.
Alessandro
