This is somewhat tangential but if the server has an internal USB port
(directly on the motherboard), you *could* use it just for boot+root for
the OS and then have buy any kind of controller which supports your
drives. Almost all modern servers have this, but the 1950 is a bit old...

In the same direction: if you have the space and the cabling, you could
just add a single small drive and connect it to the motherboard SATA
controller (non-RAID) and boot from that.
