I'd run memtest on spec: it's a harmless enough way for your pooter to
idle away an hour or too, and it certainly resolved a problem I had with
Sarge with random segfaults in just about everything except the kernel.
A quick google will turn up ots home page and/or download location. You
just need a small binary to copy to floppy.
