43P-150 or the (POWER3-II) based 44P-170 - which top out at 5.3 IIRC.  Don't
expect to do stuff such as LPARs with it, but they'll at least give you some
idea of whether you want to go further.

top out at 5.1(although some have thought that 4.3 fits them better).

Or if you can find one with a framebuffer (or add a 135 or 130 frambuffer
card), a 7046-B50 is a nice relatively quiet and usable 2U rackie. Again, 604e
based and tops out at 5.3.
