Yes, they can.  dellmgr is a text-console tool for interactively
querying an LSI-made RAID controller (which your PERC 2/DC is).
Megamon is more of a poll-and-send-email-on-failure app, and percsnmp
is a net-snmp subagent, so you can roll that into your (existing) SNMP
management framework.  Each RPM should have enough documentation to
get you started.

Also, you noted in your first email that still
mirrors my old (now-historical) site.  Up to date
information is available at now.
