Having determined that the loading dock didn't have enough space, we spent the next few days trying to find some solutions to this problem. Step one: move things to storage and start working on a test cluster. Step two: start assembling in what space we might have, using the lessons of step one. And so by the end of 11 May 2004, we had a full five systems mounted in the rack.

Proof of Concept

With this, we proved to ourselves that we knew how to mount a system. We then promptly took the system back out because we figured out what we were doing wrong.
