HP SmartStart 8.7b x64 install OL 6.3

I am trying to run the installer for the smartstart console based frontend on the HP Smartstart 8.70b DVD (x64). When the script runs it says "the kernel-headers RPM is not installed on this server. If I bypass the script that tests the front end I get error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory. any ideas on how to overcome this?

    # yum install kernel-devel-uek-`uname -r`
    # yum install kernel-devel-`uname -r`
    # yum info kernel-uek-devel
