I just finished rebuilding a system that went down on Saturday afternoon. It ended up being the power supply. Early on, I probably could have just replaced the ps but after a number of fsck's, followed by panics, there were files that were linked and etc. and the system wouldn't boot into single user mode. A rebuild using a brand new HD seemed the logical way out. I could mount the old disk and cp important directories or individual files onto the new HD. It turned out that / was the only one trashed but backup files of /etc , /home/user's, and all of the port tarballs were ok.
