Expansion card power on Dell PowerEdge 2850

I bought a PCIe Firewire card for my Poweredge 2850 server, however, the card requires power.  I'm not able to find any power adapters to plug it into on the motherboard?

Am I being totally stupid on this or that not an option?

Thank you!

I actually placed the pci/e card in my computer, a Dell Precision 3400, and it would not work until I plugged the power supply in.

Thank you!

I actually figured this out myself, but thank you for the suggestions.
