Thanks to all who replied!

Yes, I tried Knoppix and it's the same story - that's what convinces me that I'm 
dealing with a hardware failure.

I'm going to try various arrangements ( one power supply, one cpu, no SCSI card, 
etc.) to see if I can isolate it.  That's because I only have about 3 to 5 
minutes before it blanks on me so the software tools may not do the job fast 
enough.  In fact, I'm not sure I can even get them installed!
