I'm not sure about compaq, but Dell treats service providers like
end-users in terms of service parts availability. Their part numbering
schemes are incredibly inconsistent... constantly changing and some
part numbers don't work anymore. So far I have found IBM and HP have
the best service provider support and IBM is hands-down the best IA32
