[RndTbl] partial PS use?

Is it possible to use a standard AT (old style) computer power supply just 
for its +5v out?  I have a project and I just need 5v with a beefy amount 
of amps, and I have lots of AT PS's around that would fit the bill, but 
I'm wondering if running a computer PS just for its 5v line might damage 
it somehow?  There would be no load on the 12v (and other) lines.  
Anything I should worry about?
