if somebody posts a summary of command/control options for remote colo boxes
i'd love to include it, or a pointer to it, at www.vix.com/personalcolo.

i like the pc-weasel but i admit that my main system has a motherboard that's
incompatible with it so i'm ready to consider an ethernet-based alternative.
(i also have a number of 1U's that didn't have a free slot for a pc-weasel.)

two thirds of the motherboards which advertise "serial bios" as an option
don't produce any output.  and some of them appear to use the com1 or com2
port in some kind of non-ascii mode which requires special software.

i'm happy to add to the registry a list of things like pc-weasel and rtty and
rocketport, but i'd like to have some confidence that it's a comprehensive
list, which means that someone more familiary with the field has to build it.
