I ran into that on my previous job - "standard" rails in a heavy telco
environment. We had enclosed racks as well as relay racks, but the
enclosed racks weren't mechanically compatible with some semi-modern
server gear - we had to used extenders on the rails, _and_ a sawsall
on the front rack posts.
I really miss the "old" days working with DEC equipment in DEC racks -
it fit well most of the time. This new stuff doesn't fit so well in
