hi ya

when these problems occurs ... ( in identical systems built out of the
same batch of mb, cpu, mem, disks ) ... we usually just swap
the memory sticks .. the problem tend to follow the memory stick
	( always good to have spare parts floating around :-)

memtest's reliability is teh equivalent of "the purfect hamburger
you might get at McDonalds" ( memtest is worthless as far as the folks
that sell memory sticks is concerned ... don't mention memtest, and they
will probably replace the bad memory ... mentioning it will get us laughed
out of the rma process )
