1) opensuse 10.3 isn't officially supported by OMSA, so the automatic
installation via the hardware repo won't work. (note - it's pulled in
the emptyrepo automatically which doesn't have the packages).

2) PowerEdge SC systems don't have OMSA support, regardless of your
   OS.

If you have the DRAC3/XT card, you'll want to use openipmi and
ipmitool and the like.  If you don't have that card, then you don't
have IPMI in this system either.  See

Thanks,
Matt
