Well, to answer the original question, Sun's catalog number for their
rackmount kit is 595-4872-03 (and there's also another number, "X9695A",
that probably goes to the expansion option or something). There's a
company called SharkRack that made (and still makes) a lot of custom rack
stuff, and their 4-post option for the E250 is here:
They also make a rackmount kit for the E450 (with the wheels still
attached!). Unfortunately they're a bit on the expensive side.
