We have a fairly well developed testing methodogy here ... with a
couple of people I can lend to the task.  To be useful, they'll need
both root and console access to boxes (serial cross connects are fine)
... along with somone who can play with BIOS settings on request.
We'd be very willing to donate the hands and eyes to do much of the
volume testing.

... our only problem is buying enough new hardware.
