Well, shit.  
It would be today that the +5V rail goes out on Hayabusa. Time to find a PS to swap.

ETA: On gentoo, I can turn off the annoying-as-shit motherboard temperature alarm which is triggered at 36C by adding "ignore beep_enable" in the "as99127f-*" section of /etc/sensor.conf.

AETA: Well, Hayabusa fucking offed itself with a different power supply (which wasn't bad until it got plugged in) about two hours ago. I have no extra power supplies, only one working desktop faster than 700Mhz, and I just want to break that motherfucker in half right now. I am so fucking mad right now . . .

If all else fails, try a university computer surplus shop. They usually have pretty high end machines for a very low price. My son's computer crapped out about a year ago, and I just ended up getting an empty case with power supply from university surplus. Cost me about 30 bucks, but I didn't have to wait. I don't know if that would work for the machines you are talking about, but it's just an idea.
