wow, those 750 servers are cheap ($650!)

eracks.com has good prices too - and come with open/free installed

i didn't know about the dell though, i might have to order that.  the 
4yr old eracks server we had as a firewall died last week (re my 
earlier crazed postings) - i think the powersupply blew and screwed the 
mobo/cpu.  i've got 3 nics and an  assortment of random crap literally 
held together by scotch tape.
