If they are Dell servers, you could always name each host in their BIOS so it shows up on the display of the host.

I did that with a batch of sun v20z's... when they got to the colo, no one knew which was which until they're powered and the service processor is fully booted. (a process that takes several minutes) By then, they've been racked in the wrong racks and in the wrong order. :-( Of course, I've done that to myself as well... pull a stack of machines and forget what order they were in :-)
