At the present state of art it means only one - check your hardware -
especially external cache on your motherboard. If switching off external
cache in BIOS setup makes it compile without errors (but much slower), then
comply to your supplier. I do not know a better hardware test for a machine
than to compile a Linux kernel. You may just set the slowest mode and try.

To developers: may be Linux version of gcc should give similiar explanation
on that error ?

P.S. I had that problem, and I could not believe other people telling me
that. My computer passed all tests and worked so well under DOS (well, DOS
just failed occasionally, but that was normal).
