[rescue] New toys.

I got a pair of E6500 and three E4000 carcasses (missing a lot of stuff, 
including some PCMs, most of the power input modules, and all the CPU 
boards) for $cheap last week.

After a bit of money on eBay and utilizing my collection of spare 
boards, I got together enough parts to have something fun running:


Now, 2/3 of the CPUs are actually 400s, but the others are 336s, so 
everything gets run at 336MHz.

So, I've noticed a "warning" message I've been getting from the machine, 
which seems to be non-deadly:

0,0>ERROR: TEST=System Interrupts,SUBTEST=System Interrupts ID=1f.1
0,0>Component under test: Board 0 System Interrupt
0,0>Rack Fan failed

Anyone have an idea what the "Rack Fan" is on these?  My best guess it 
the fan on the keyswitch module, or for the removable media bays.
