If you use FreeBSD don't look upon IBM blades at all. I've installed few
freebsd 5.4 on IBM HS20 blades. If you need console, the only way to
get there is through java web interface that sucks, brakes and crashes
constantly. Because the keyboard is not supported you have to use it.
Everything else also sucked. We had two blade chassis with 28 blade servers
and I have never been so frustrated like I was with them and IBM people
that did not solve our problem.
One cannot sell the earth upon which the people walk
