See http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docvie...id=swg21245181
If this is for a crash dump collector, you need to install kdump (RHEL/Centos 5.x)
See also http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-6039.

For a dump of the current RAM ie non-crash it looks like Alt-sysreq-m from the IBM page is your best bet.
