More dual opteron images

In original story about the dual opteron I was recently given by iXsystems, I included a link to photos of various sizes. I have since found this to be inadequete when trying to point out various features of the chassis. This new post article will correct that by including some thumbnail images and provide a faster way to find what I am looking for.

The back plane, where the drives attach

When you remove the cover shown in photos above, you can then see the back plane, the floppy drive, and the CDROM drive.
