> dmidecode -s system-serial-number

Good to know, but that doesn't work with dmidecode provided by
kernel-utils on RHEL4 boxes. I've copied that dmidecode from a RHEL4
box to a central bin location and setuid root dmidecode (I don't think
there will be any security issues since it's a /dev/mem read only
prog) so that non-super users can run the script. That RHEL4 version
of dmidecode works with RHEL5 boxes also.
