I've run cables in from both sides.  You can get cable management bars 
that rack mount on top of the 6500 chassis rack ears.  These are literally 
a steel bar with 2 radiused 90* bends, the ends of which are welded to 
"rack ears".  Mounting these in front of the line cards, you can then use 
velcro to secure the cables on their way to the line card ports.
