Stupid stick of RAM - passed memtest, but doesn't seem to run an OS
worth a hoot.

	Anyone seen any situations where Breezy installs for the most
part, but then fails on seemingly random packages, ultimately ending in
a message to the extent of "too many packages failed to continue"?

	I've tried two different motherboards, different hard drives, 3
different copies of "pressed" Ubuntu discs, one CDR copy, different
processors, and I still get the same damn error.  I'm playing around
with different RAM chips now, but so far have gotten the same problem on
two different 256mb dimms.

	dmesg hasn't shown CD read errors or hard drive IO errors...
