Should always put a drier on a compressor. You'll learn the hard way if you
invest in pneumatic tools; you will kill them if you don't.

Without actually checking, if memory serves there were a number of products
from that time frame that used inferior electrolytic filter caps. You can
easily spot these by examining the top where there is metal showing through
in the center surrounded by the plastic wrapper. In the caps that fail the
plastic wrapper part will be swelled up and puffy looking, possibly even so
far as to have cracks with goo oozing out of them.

I have an Abit KD7A powering a small home development server that I've been
really lucky with, it just sits there and keeps on doing it's thing. But I
have a feeling you may have hit the bad cap problem with the VP6.
