If you're willing to do a little work (and a cheap PDP 11 cage doesn't
come your way), Hammond Manufacturing (and probably many others) sells
rack rails made of 10 gauge steel with tapped holes (or square holes) with
standard EIA spacing of various lengths. A pair of 56" (32U) tapped rails
will run about US$73. You can start at http://www.hammondmfg.com/ for more
details. DigiKey (www.digikey.com) and Hammond Electronics
(www.hammondelec.com) are both distributors. Keep in mind these are just
the rails. You'll have to mount them to something with the appropriate
spacing for equipment.

                                things can go wrong at once.
