Detecting DRAC Option

I'm building a kickstart installation and custom media set that will be
used to install RHAS 3.0 on various Dell models.  The ERA/O and DRAC
cards are options on the top-end servers we sell, but not on the
entry-level boxes.  As such, I don't want to install the OpenManage
software on the entry-level machines and would like to key that
installation based on the presence of the ERA/O or DRAC cards.  Does
anyone know of a way to reliably detect for the existance of these
