[Beowulf] Remote console management

Here is an IPMI on Debian HOWTO.

Personally I've been using IPMI (serial over lan) on some Intel server 
motherboards in spring 2004. It felt like it was a tiny bit unstable, but 
good enough for remote access in BIOS, and reset/on/off. And for SOL I 
used the Intel Linux binary. But I don't take care of those machines any 
more. Best terminal support in BIOS I got from the Windows telnet binary.

I am currently installing some Dell 1850 (with remote access cards) and HP 
DL140/DL380 and it would be great with some input from someone on the 
integrated remote access in a Linux environment. Remote console and 
reset/on/off is good enough for me.
