Generic server mounting rails question

Hi everyone.  This is my first post here.  I had a question.  I have been given a rather generic 4u server case.  It looks like it has mounting holes on the sides to mount rails, but I am not sure of the company that made the unit.  Are there generic rails out there or something that can be used in order to mount a server?  All my experience has been with Dell and their rapid rail system.

There are 'universal' rail kits. Which means they universally do not fit anything. Have a drill ready. Is this going into a server rack (four post) or telco(two post)?

It's going into a 4 post server rack.

 

I was looking at rockler and they have all sorts of drawers slides. Are they tree same thing?

You need to know how deep the rack is, front post to back post to be sure the rail kit will be long enough.

That doesn't say much.  That looks like a normal case.  But a 4U case may be significantly longer. 

 

Also, it may help to upload an image of the case. There are .... enough of us that may recognize it outright.
