    Well, what do you know -- that seems to have fixed it! I took out one stick
    of RAM (so it's down to 1 gig) and it seems to work fine, now, without any
    boot parameters or anything. (mind you, murphy's law will dictate that it'll
    crash about 30 seconds after I send this...)

    I'm amazed at that -- but I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth,
    this has been frustrating me for far too long. :-)

    Although, having said that, I'm curious... It is working because there's
    only 1 gig of RAM in there, or because it's only a single stick (ie. not
    dual-channel)? It works fine with both sticks, individually, just not both
    together... I wonder what the cause of it actually is...

    Thanks heaps for the suggestion!
