Depends on the IPMI BMC. If you're lucky, it works out of the box, and
if you're unlucky, you have to implement undocumented BIOS interfaces.
The easiest solution is to buy a card and try it, and if it doesn't
work, reverse engineer it or try another card.

Besides that, IPMI is a security nightmare (see the discussions on the
linux-kernel mailing list about IPMI bypassing host network security).
