Will the fuze in my ATX power supply protect the power supply rails from being damaged? Answered

Hi, I have moded a few ATX power supplys before and my latest find has a higher wattage than my other ones. Anyway I want to make sure that I dont blow up this one. So does the fuze in the power supply on the input protect the whole power supply from over current & shorts or do I need to fuze each rail indervisually?

Also I want to protect the supply from EMF from inductive loads. I was just going to connect diodes in reverse accross the outputs. Any ideas on what diodes I should use?

Thanks, David.
