I had a Dell Poweredge 1855 blade server that was in another entity's chassis.  I had to get it out of the chassis and want to power it and cable it without having to put it back in the chassis.  Is it possible and can you point me in the direction of the cabling option(s) that I may have?

I am unaware of a single slot interface that you need to plug the component into from which it can have the power, network interfaces.

You need a chassis. One famous auction site, ebay, has one listed for $139

If you have an option to go and connect it back, you could virtualize it.
