I only have experience with HP's iLO, and that only supports BIOS
writes as far as I can tell (except the advanced version which does a
full graphical console). Linux doesn't use BIOS writes, so that battle
is lost already.

That's ok though, because it also works as a serial-port-over-telnet,
and the Linux serial console is reasonably good. I would imagine that
most of the other remote management cards do the same, am I wrong?
