Had a similar situation with a Pentium-75 on an ASuStek board (shock of
shocks). It had previously been used as a NetWare server, but was too
unstable so it was taken off line, then installed SlackWare 3.0, and
1.2.13 was OK, but anything beyond that (1.3.XX experimental kernels, etc)
were always segfaulting. If your board ahs an Award BIOS (this one did)
slow the RAM timings down a bit, and try again. Just my $0.02 worth - hope
it helps.
