Ahh, but awkwardness and upgrading is almost always synonymous.
Maybe you can get a USB floppy drive and try to console that way? You
may want to also look at the BIOS and see if there is an update or
tweak on the video card or AGP. I know you said you tested it on
another PC, but did you test it on another server of the same EXACT
spec's (BIOS version included)? Also if this video card shares mem
with the system mem, you could try giving the card like 32M to start
on, then take that back down once its up and working.
