Default Blade server questions

ok... first of all hello computer forums,
i have a quick question i found a cheap blade server on ebay and was wondering, does one need the blade server chassis or is there a way to get a "generic" / modded chassis to get these things to work.

the exact blade im considering purchasing would be the IBM HS20
and (i guess) the chassis would be the Hseries chassis.

Thanks in advance,
- Theonewhotried

Default Re: Blade server questions

you need the chassis to actually access things on the blade.

edit, I guess it's be possible to make your own blade chassis, but I doubt that this will be easy, and I don't know your level of skill...

I also expect documentation on how to do this will be either poor, or nonexistant.
