OMSA won't install w/ yum - centos 4.8

What PowerEdge is this on?  I had a similar experience (yum install  
srvadmin-all failing with "Nothing to do") when attempting to install  
6.1 on some older gear (1650, 1750).

I eventually looked through the hardware repositories ( http://linux.dell.com/repo/hardware/OMSA_6.0.2/ 
  vs. http://linux.dell.com/repo/hardware/OMSA_6.1/ ) and noticed a  
lack of a "1650" or "1750" folder in 6.1.  When I switched to  
installing 6.0.2 (which has those folders) things began working for me.
