Steps to test:

1. Load RHEL5.2 and MRG 1.0.1 (should include rt-setup package)
2. Verify that rt-setup-kdump is there:
    # rt-setup-kdump --help
3. Verify that no entries in /etc/grub.conf contain "crashkernel=" entries
4. As root, run the rt-setup-kdump script:
    # rt-setup-kdump --grub --verbose
5. Verify that at least the latest RHEL5 kernel entry in /etc/grub.conf has the "crashkernel=128M@16M" entry.
