The "quick start guide" I'm looking at (sa41517104.pdf) refers to
"LAN implementation of Operations Console," and doesn't seem to say or
imply anything about it needing to run on a dedicated PC.

That's because it doesn't - it's just something that i would
_extremely strongly_ suggest :)

If a customer buys a machine from us, we'll throw in the console for
free. A Lenovo SFF PC and a 17" TFT doesn't cost anything anymore, and
it makes it very clear that there'll always be a working console next
to the system.

You might never need it, but if you do you'll be very happy you do
have a seperate, working box for that.

By the way:

OpsCon usually means: Operations Console serially attached
Lan Console usually means: Operations console LAN attached

It's something you see all over the web, but the IBM documentation
uses the official names. That can be confusing.

Hmm. Am I looking at the wrong quick start guide then? I don't see
anything comparable specific to an E4A, and most of what I do see looks
about the same as the quick start guide.

I don't think you're looking at the wrong guide. The guide is just very poor ;)
