It's failing because it can't find the device driver, which is odd, as
SLES 10 includes a good-enough device driver in its kernel. Typically
you would install the OpenIPMI package, and then start the
/etc/init.d/ipmi service to load the drivers.

OK, this whole message is bogus on SLES10 because we never had to
produce a DKMSified IPMI driver, because we had it included in the
SLES10 kernel. The message would be fine for RHEL3, RHEL4, and SLES9.
What happens when you:
you should see several messages indicating the driver loaded.
