    If you find no freebies, call ICT Direct as they often have some cheap second hand ones and they are only in Ribchester.

    the Xserve is 30 inches deep. Iknow thats only 5 more but still. most server cabs that are designed for racked servers are about 800 or 1000 deep.

    John has already contacted me

    And I have mainly Dell servers, the Acer ones were given to us by a University for free. So offloading my non critical roles to them - such as IIS / Sophos / RIS etc. But uses one for ISA 2004 as it is a much better spec than what was running it.
