I ran memtest86 from a floopy and it is reporting high
numbers of memory test failures. I ran the same
program on a stable machine and that has shown no
memory errors.

I am going to see if I have some spare, suitable
memory I can swap, and maybe invest in some new memory
- in the hope the memory is the problem and I am not
throwing good money after bad
