It's unanimous.

The extra slot is a UPA slot for a Creator 3d Graphics card.

The same motherboard goes into an Ultra 10 and only here can you use it.

The Ultra 5 has this but there is no space in the case for a card to fit in. 
So it just sits there.

Many thanks to all of the people who responded.

Unix Rules!
