Thank you, the initiator utils from 5.4 did the trick.  Now, here's
hoping the CentOS team gets 5.4 out the door soon - until then I think
I'll have to run the rhel 5.4 initiator utils against the CentOS 5.3
stuff.  It compiled cleanly and installed cleanly and all my tests
seem successful - is there any known issues that I should watch out
for with this configuration?

Thanks a ton for the help!
