Networkable KVM?

Anybody know of a good KVM switch I could log into remotely that costs less than $10,000 like this one?

I suppose I don't need to log into the servers often enough to warrant one of these things (definitely not at $10,000) but if there are cheap ones that work, that'd be cool.

I don't even need access to graphics remotely (no X, no Windows) .... so perhaps KVM is overkill. I wonder if a serial console solution would work. The BIOS has to support that, right? The Dell machines likely do, but I'm not sure if the ASL machines would.

Just thinking aloud. Feel free to jump in if you know anything on this topic. (I imagine many of you do....)
