What model HP servers are we talking about? Some of those have iLO which
will let you access the console over the network.

I've been pondering the ProLiant DL380 G4 for an upcoming server purchase,
partially because of the iLO. THe ability (and included examples) of it to
be scripted using Perl could be very handy for automated deployment.
