are easily replaced.

Good question - not sure what the card cage is used for, I was not
expecting to see one in there when I opened it today. Fortunately the
computer itself is not corroded like the card cage in the bottom of the
cabinet. Worst case you can remove the 11/44 from the cabinet entirely.
