Yeah, a number of motherboards now come with TPMs that include hardware RNGs...

My current personal server (Dell R710) has just such a beastie -- there is some info here: http://domsch.com/blog/?p=107 and I *think* that the rng-tools package now supports it natively....

I spent *many* hours futzing with this, rebooting into the BIOS to try and enable the TPM, upgrading the BIOS, beating my head against a wall, etc...
Eventually I realized that I had purchased the server from the Dell outlet center and even though the build list included the standard (RoW - "Rest of World"!) motherboard it actually had the China specific board that is identical, but doesn't include a TPM....
