True, I believe that this is one way that IBM is cutting their costs   
however you can usually cut a deal with your VAR when you make your   
equipment purchase to have them do the full installation.  I do this with   
anything that I purchase because it reduces my liability.

Not in the new world.  Besides, putting cards in a machine isn't exactly
rocket science.  As Neil alluded to, the hard part is knowing where to   
put
the card.  But there are plenty of resource to find out that info.  I   
have
seen many instances where the CE does not do the work.  Buy some new   
drives
for a model 400.  The CE may come in and install the physical drives in   
the
frame, but that is it.  It is up to the user to add them to the ASP or   
set
up either mirroring/RAID.  Buy used equipment and you are on your own   
even
more.
