20071018 nijaba:
 * sent email to HP to get more information on integration requirements
 * debian OMSA for Dell exists but does not seem to be maintained since Nov 2006. Sent an email to Dell on the subject.
 * installing agents with alien somehow work (see http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/forums/dw_search.jsp?search=true&cat=53&forum=759&q=ubuntu&forums=759&x=0&y=0). Sent an email to IBM on the subject

I suggest we consider Intel AMT - which is open source or in the process of becoming open source: http://www.intel.com/cd/network/connectivity/emea/eng/203372.htm
