Problems getting OpenManage SA installed on PE2650 running CentOS 5.5

Hello. I'm having trouble getting Dell OpenManage Server Administrator to
run on my Dell PE2650 running CentOS 5.5. Currently v6.2 is installed (I've
tried older versions too, none sufficiently successful). When I try to start
the services I get this:

[root at pe2650 /]# srvadmin-services.sh start
Starting mptctl:
Waiting for mptctl driver registration to complete:
                                                           [  OK  ]

Starting Systems Management Device Drivers:
Starting dell_rbu:                                         [  OK  ]
Starting ipmi driver: Already started                      [  OK  ]
Starting Systems Management Data Engine:
Failed to start because system is not supported
dsm_om_shrsvc: DSM SA Shared Services cannot start on an unsupported system.
See the Dell Systems Software Support Matrix for a list of supported
systems.
Starting DSM SA Connection Service:                        [  OK  ]

find<http://linux.dell.com/wiki/index.php/Repository/OMSA#Supported_Operating_Systems>OMSA
should work on CentOS. Version 5.2 is running on another CentOS box
running 5.4 but I could not get that version installed on the PE2650 (which
was running CentOS 5.4 at the time). At boot, I get this:

Jul  7 13:48:03 pe2650 udevd-event[31439]: run_program: exec of program
'/opt/dell/srvadmin/bin/dataeng.hotplug' failed

Jul  7 13:48:04 pe2650 udevd-event[31466]: run_program: exec of program
'/opt/dell/srvadmin/bin/dataeng.hotplug' failed

I've updated the BIOS to the latest version and run update_firmware
following the instructions here<http://linux.dell.com/repo/hardware/OMSA_6.2/>.
No difference. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.
