sharing a power supply

Thanks to everybody for the help.

My final set-up will probably look like:

- master node on a 300W supply
- three slaves on a 450W supply.

I am counting on the following maximum draws for
each motherboard (Duron at 1300 + 512 MB RAM):

	15A / 5V
	<1A / 3.3V
	5A / 12V

This is _just_ inside the 450W supply's specs -
I hope they were not overly optimistic.

On the other hand, a good 350W supply can power
up a dual with 1GB RAM ...

Best regards,
Alan Ward
