Depends on the rack. DEC H960 cabs have wheels. The stuff we were
getting recently, with movable internal, pre-threaded rails, front
and back plexiglass doors, have pegs. I should have said the DEC
stuff has wheels and typically has pegs for levelling/anti-roll.

The one thing I like about modern cabinets is that it's easy to fit
shelves, since most modern gear does not have rackmount ears unless
you get back into the high-end. Old DEC stuff was always rackable,
so shelves didn't matter.
