I borrowed a laptop from a roommate last night and put one of the boot
disks into a USB cannister, and Seagate's tools id'd it.  No problems
were found, but I didn't complete the surface scan (it was only at 11%
done after 7 hours *ouch*).  While not 100% confirming, it's a strong
indication that the mobo IDE is fsck'd from the sagging power.

Thanks for the comments/suggestions, folks.  I dunno if I'll be
rebuilding as an x86 box, or buying a TeraStation Pro.
