[rescue] x86 power question

I have an x86 power question...
I was given a server (Gateway ALR 7200) that I'd like to goof with
for a while (SNMP baby) but it won't power up. It's likely the power
supply but I don't know how to identify power supplies in PC hardware
any more. It appears to use two connectors for the motherboard. One
is what I recall as the standard ATX connector (2 rows of 10 pins each)
and the other looks like an AT connector (1 row of 6 or 8 pins). What
type of power supply is it?
The motherboard will take dual PII or PIII cpus which I have from a
previous dual PII-350 machine whose power supply died but it took a funky
multi-connector power supply from IBM I wasn't able to replace for a
reasonable price so it went into the dumpster. I saved the memory, cpus,
drives, etc, so this would let me resurrect it.
