Server Remote Management

Am I required to get an IPMI card to remote manage servers?  I have some servers in a remote data center (our office).  When a server is powered down I have to drive into the office to power it up.  Are there any solutions for me to remotely power on the server, outside of purchasing IPMI cards for every box?

I tried a few wake on lan utilities but I did not have the MAC address at the time.  If I have the server MAC address utility do I need any additional / special hardware in the server to power the server on?

Actually, if you enable the WOL (Wake-On-Lan) in the BIOS and have the WOL tools, you should be able to send the WOL command and it will work.
