How are these guys doing $29/mo "dedicated server"?  What's the catch?  
They say it's a Xeon 3040 1.9GHz, so that's older/slower, but say I don't 
need speed.  RAM 2G is anemic but doable if I don't need much RAM.  
Doesn't say ECC or not, so that's one possible catch (but usually 
Xeon==ECC).  No RAID, that sucks, maybe it can be added as a cheap 
upgrade?  Network looks very good.

Anyhow, that's 10-20X less than Rackspace wants for ded server.  How are 
they doing this?  Is there some VM or blade-ish thing going on here?  Is 
it really a 1U box (or possibly even smaller form) somewhere just for me?
