Well, memtest passes if I don't enable ECC in memtest. However, if I do,
it fails. So it looks like we've got a memory/memory controller issue
(the fact that it's happening on all machines with these motherboards
implies to me that's a controller/bios issue rather than a memory
issue). If I update the AGP aperture in the BIOS to 256Mb (from 64Mb),
memtest with ECC enabled passes but linux then boots up extremely
slowly. So is this also going to be motherboard/bios issue?
