update_firmware on CentOS 5.8. PER610

I'm finding that:

   sudo rpm -e $(rpm -qa | grep dell_ie_ )
   sudo rpm -e $(rpm -qa | grep srvadmin- )

is generally sufficient, depending on what version is being updated from.
If dell_ft_install, openwsman-server, openwsman-client, or libwsman are
installed, those need to go, too.  For updates from 6.3 and later one can
get by without first removing all the srvadmin-* packages if one goes back
and explicitly updates

srvadmin-omcommon \
srvadmin-jre \
srvadmin-rac4-populator \
srvadmin-storelib-sysfs \
srvadmin-xmlsup \
srvadmin-argtable2 \
srvadmin-idrac-vmcli \
srvadmin-idracadm

which apparently don't get referenced by the srvadmin-all 7.0 metapackage.
