DL580 & an HP A1897A rack

I've got an HP A1897A rack that I'm trying to use to clean up some servers with. I'd like to get a DL580 in there, but I'm not sure what rails and such I'd need to buy. The posts on the 1897A don't look much like the posts on other racks I've seen. Rather then being a square 'U' shape, the posts are more of a dipper shape. Quite a few of the rails I've tried for other servers have not worked in it because of the odd shape. It has been suggested to me by a fellow who works for to use the pull-out shelves that they sell, but if I can get actual HP/Compaq rails that will work, I'd rather do that first.

Hints & suggestions?
