That first one's for a 220R / 240R (or perhaps they mean 420R; I know the  
rails for the Sun Fire V240 are completely different), which are designed  
for the rack, while the E250 is a tower that may be rackmounted.  From  
what I remember of the two rackmounted E250s that I've seen, I think you  
have to take off the top plastic panel to put in the rack rails.  A shelf  
may be another option, but I don't know if the tower case is too wide to  
fit in the shelf.
