The machine is hooked up by serial console, anyway.  I'll set something 
up for you to have remote access, including flipping the power switch on

It's an ASRock 939Dual-Sata2 Mainboard -- If the other user runs the 
same, he might not need to go through setting up things, but just check 
on eventual results.

Give me a moment, I'll get back to you off-list in about an hour.
