For the most part, motherboard layouts in older Compaq servers are quite
proprietary. With luck, you may find a newer Compaq server board that fits in
the same chassis... Ben Myers

Ben's correct. Forget about a non-Compaq board. Even a newer Compaq
motherboard, though it might physically fit the chasis, is likely to have
different connectors and internal pinouts.
