How can I determine the generation (I, II or III) or revision in a Poweredge 2950 (visual options); or is there is a way to determine the generation trough the Dell shipping date, maybe?

Top left corner of system chasis is labeled "II" for second generation and "III" for third.

Dates won't help, as they just started rolling them off the line as people configured them with the newer processors, so they would have had two generations rolling of the production lines at the same time.  

Service Tag should tell you in the Original Configuration here (something like this:
1 YM085 ASSEMBLY..., CHASSIS..., 2.5HD, 2U, PE2950, III ):

But the easiest way to tell is the II or III label on the front, as medvedd suggested.
