Do you have the same results using Ubuntu 8.04?
Have you upgraded the BIOS?
Have you tried using the Ubuntu 8.10 Alternate CD?
I know you want a server, but it's just to be sure everything goes ok using
Ubuntu 8.10 with an alternate install
Did you checked you MD5 checksum?
Would it be possible to run a memtest?

If you are trying to setup a server, my personal opinion will be to use
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS(Long Term Support)
I have an Asus and an  ECS motherboards using the same or similar
configuration as yours and never had that issue(of course I have upgraded
the BIOS to the latest version in all of them) and used external graphics
card(PCI-e) on one of them.

Mine are:
4x2GB Kingston RAM 667 & 800Mhz
AMD Athlon 64 x2 4800+ & 5500+
ECS A770M-A & Asus M2N-VM HDMI
using Ubuntu 8.04 Server & CentOS 5.2

Hope it helps.
