Still got the original install discs for the Mac Pro? If so boot into Apple Hardware Test and run the extended mode and see what is reported. Also boot from your current OS DVD, go into Utilities in the Menu Bar and select Disk Utility and under First Aid run Repair Disk and see what that reports.

From your description about utilities not opening, may well be a failing hard drive.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
