hp dl165 g5 and hponcfg for centos/redhat

I'm having trouble using the hponcfg utility on a centos/rocks cluster.

the ilo is up and running (i may connect to it wia http on the management port, but I need hponcfg to change admin password.

I have installed two rpm's from the PSP:
rpm -ivh hp-ilo-8.5.0-1.rhel5.x86_64.rpm
rpm -ivh hponcfg-3.1.0-0.noarch.rpm

this only gives me this errormessage:
# hponcfg -w
HPONCFG RILOE II/iLO setup and configuration utility
Version 3.1.0 (c) Hewlett-Packard Company, 2010

ERROR: A general system error occurred while detecting iLO/RILOE-II.
ACTION REQUIRED: Check if iLO and iLO driver is up and running.

ProLiant 100 series features Lights-Out 100i, an IPMI Baseboard Management Controller, and NOT the Integrated Lights-Out management processor available on ProLiant 300 and above. HPONCFG will not work with this. You should check into IPMITOOL available in your distro to set this up.
