There is an option to run memtest86 in the boot menu, no need burn it
to a CD. But you need to boot from a CD to be able to run fsck on your
root partition as it can not run on a mounted partition. You can use
your Kubuntu CD to boot from and run fsck and i think there is an
option fro memtest on the CD to.
