Install Dell OpenManage on Linux Server

Hello,
   I am building a PowerEdge 1950 with CentoOS 5.  The OS install works perfectly. I would like to install the OpenManage system to monitor the hardware of the box.  I have done this in the past but I seem to having some trouble on this one. I added the repository by issuing the command " wget -q -O - http://linux.dell.com/repo/hardware/OMSA_5.5/bootstrap.cgi | bash" which I found at http://linux.dell.com/wiki/index.php/Repository/OMSA#UNSUPPORTED_Operating_Systems.  That command runs, linstalls the repositories, but finally exits with the following error "Command line error: no such option: --disableplugin".  When I then try to install openmanage with yum install srvadmin-all I am told that there is nothing to do.  No error though.  Has anyone had success loading these packages?
