One gotcha when moving a Challenge XL:  There are retainer brackets in
each card cage to keep the cards from sliding out of their connectors.
They're not optional.  The full-rack challenge I got in 2003 was DOA
with a cracked midplane thanks to the seller not putting the rear
bracket back in place after taking photos of the system.

If you have to move it without the bracket, remove all the cards from
the cage.
