Thank you very much. This was just the sort of information I was looking for. I was just having trouble working out which bit of TFM to R...

Incidentally, I've now got the om* command line tools working on Debian (by the expedient of installing to a Red Hat partition, and then copying /usr/lib/dell across and making a few symlinks - it's just the installation script that doesn't work. Could Dell be persuaded to make these tools available in a tar file of /usr/lib/dell? I know you can download a tar file already, but that contains the same as the CD and needs Red Hat to run the installation script.

Thanks again, Simon
