SubjectOops with 2.4.0-t8p6

I have just gotten hold of an old machine previously running Win98. When
I tried to install RH 6.2 on it I got an oops during boot from the floppy.
I replaced the kernel on the floppy with a 2.4.0-test8-pre6 kernel and
got an oops again right after the line 'POSIX conformance testing by UNIFIX'.
Ksymoops output provided below. I guess it is bad RAM but if anyone would
confirm, I would appreciate it.

ksymoops 0.7c on i686 2.2.17pre13. Options used
-V (specified)
-K (specified)
-L (specified)
-O (specified)
-m (specified)

I've overclocked my keyboard interface. It's quite messy dipping my
hands into the mineral oil, but *MAN* is my keyboard ever fast now!
