Doh.. I checked in the downloaded tarball, but forgot to check if
anything was installed vi RPM. Thanks, I'll look at these from now on :)

The "Replacing" state for physical disks (mentioned above) is still
missing from the MIBs (version, but I'll manage. The MIBs don't
seem to be 100% updated with the new features, but certainly better than
the obsolete 6.0.1 version.

PS. If someone from Dell is reading this.. If you don't plan to maintain
the separate MIB download, it should be removed.
