I tried to go this way but I hit a dependency/version error with
smbios-utils-python >= 2.2.0
However I do have a version 2.2.26 as you can in package description
below. (?)

Arch       : x86_64
Version    : 2.2.26
Release    : 6.2.el5
Size       : 63 k
Repo       : dell-omsa-indep

I don't think that this is an issue but you never know... :)

Thanks for your reply Jim.
