Installing HP System Drivers on Centos 7 / Redhat RHEL

I have just installed my (old) HP Proliant ML350 G5 server with a CentOS minimal install.  I couldn’t find a complete guide to installing all the management tools, including HP System Management Homepage. I found bits of information here and there and of course a lot of outdated information. So hopefully to save others a bit of time I thought I’d share how I did it.  This article will need some future refinement….
