PSU modification (while taking a bath!)

I've got kinda a dumb question-
If I splice another motherboard connector to a 380 watt psu, would it properly power two old motherboards? (one old psu for a p2 mobo was only 112 watts)
I just wanna know if it would work, dont care about safety issues. heheh
Also, are there psu's made wich would support multiple plain ol pc mobo's?

Why not go this way: http://www.pricewatch.com/power_supp...ase/4004-1.htm - $11.00 with free shipping is almost cheaper than the solder necessary for your plans.

Cant beat that.

Title says it all. $40 for the same psu at the local shop here. The idea i'm toying with though, is building a rack for multiple P3 mobo's with a hard drive, network card or two each, cdrom each(monitor, mouse, kb only on a couple higher end system)- brainstorming to reduce clutter. A psu each
seems kinda redundant for what I have in mind.

Well, it SEEMS like it could work, but you'd have to part out broken power supplies to get the connectors. Maybe your local shop could help with jumk items that can be recycled. Have fun!
