IIRC it was a big thing to buy cheap dell SC420 servers and install video
cards in them.  they had crap onboard video.  What I don't remember exactly
is if there was a clearance issue with the cards (ie break out dremel tool)
as well as something to do with the bios and which card it booted too.  Dell
was also pretty recalcitrant when it came to making bios modifications
because they were selling basically a barebones server without and os and
people were building it into a high end desktop.

I may be all wet I though.
