While I agree that that is likely true it's still off-topic for this
list.  There are _plenty_ of x86 lists out there.

This list is _specifically_, at least from my point of view, about
rescuing computers that are seen as "old" or "classic" or "out-dated".
The Compaq server in question is _none_ of those.

I'm stretching my boundaries here and I'm sure Bill will whack me with a
Narn Bat Squad if I get out of line but unless it's _unusual_ this list
is only for non-x86 hardware.

Bring on the flames...
