Thanks for that, Bill.  I've found both the packages, but neither seem 
well integrated with SNMP.  Does the world have something against SNMP?

To be honest, the prospect of spending half an hour compiling these 
packages (like SNMP and SMART monitoring required) rather than just 
picking up a ready-to-run binary does not appeal greatly either!

I've made a note of your suggestions, though, and they are appreciated.
