Failsafe didn't help, but a new memory module did.

Things look much better now.  I completed an install and started to poke
around but the on-board ethernet doesn't work.  (RealTek 0x8169, Rev. 0x10;
"not configured".)  So I will need to get a working NIC.  (No spares.  (^&)

It doesn't configure the audio, and the USB 2.0 port seems to only come up
as 1.1, but those are relatively minor.
