Hi Joan,

Thinking about this a little bit more.  If you wrote a script that did
the two commands I list in the FAQ (ipmi-locate and dmidecode), if you
cannot find IPMI via both of those mechanisms, I think with 99.99%
certainty, that system won't have IPMI.  It's hard for me to imagine a
modern-ish server not having something about IPMI in both of those
