It sounds like the processor is going. My system did the same thing but it was both the motherboard and the processor. After a few weeks that I got it working, the power supply went.

I think your processor is a slot A. They can be found at Directron. You can check eBay but be careful. Don't buy Thunderbird Athlons unless your board supports them.

I suggest you put the hard drive on another system and mount it as read-only. Then copy the files using the perserve option to another hard drive.
