[rescue] E450 Console puzzler

Mine does have the two headers, but does not have the correct back panel 
to bring out the second UPA. The hardware manual talks about having to 
replace this if you want to use the second UPA.

Mine does identify itself as "server" in OBP, but I understand that's a 
setting that can be changed.

I wish I had the SCSI backplane expansion! Mine only has the 4 disk 
backplane. Of course two more 400Mhz CPU and voltage regulators would be 
fun as well!
