have them?  I bought an HP this time ... its built into it :)  This is the 
ultimate in remote administration .. I have an ssh interface I can login 
to, I type 'remcons' and voila ... its like I'm sitting in front of the 
computer, straight from POST thru to the install screens on my FreeBSD CD 
... no having to waste space for a portmaster for 'serial console', or 
deal with remote power bars ... can even power cycle the machine through 
the same interface ...
