Xserved and Screwed

I'm in the process of surplussing an old PowerPC Apple Xserve.

Removing it from the rack proves a challenge! Of course there is the typical forest of cables that you have to deal with when a rack has been there for a while and hardware was allowed to "just grow" into position.

There are at least two front mounting screws I need to remove from the Xserve before it will slide out, and I can't access those screws without removing the Xserve!
