All is working again now. Gary was able to get jeepford's hard drive switched into humpford, our previous server box. As it turned out, their graphics chipsets were similar enough that we didn't have any problems with getting that working. (Thankfully, Linux is much hardier than Windows with such things...Windows would probably have given a BSOD on bootup from the different hard disk controller on the new mobo.)

So, as far as the server stuff is concerned, nothing has really changed; humpford now thinks it is jeepford in every way. Now the trick will be to get the real jeepford working again...perhaps it wiill turn out to just be a blown power supply (which is easy and cheap to repair), though more likely it will require a mobo replacement.
