Issues with OpenManage + CentOs 5.4

I tried installing the RPMs for OMSA 5.5 as you suggested.  It seems that
they too are doing some sort of system check.  "srvadmin-omilcore" installs
fine.  But, the remaining packages fail to install with the error:

srvadmin-syscheck: This RPM is not supported on this system (sysid=009B)
error: %pre(srvadmin-syscheck-5.5.0-364.i386) scriptlet failed, exit status 1
error:   install: %pre scriptlet failed (2), skipping

I've tried adding "Tikanga" to /etc/redhat-release , however it does not help.

Does anybody know of a way to get this to install?

Thanks again in advance!
