I'm looking for a "short rack" - basically under 4' tall, but otherwise
same as a cabinet.  Dont need front/back doors.  I'd like to have
something I can put my switch and other network equipment in, put my
PC on the top, and get rid of the ugly tuffy plastic shelves I'm
using now.  Caster wheels on the bottom would be nice too.
