This looks like you may have bad memory, or bad factors relating to memory
(such as overclocking, setting the memory latency values in the BIOS too
low, or using a motherboard that isn't as reliable as claimed when running
at the highest supported FSB speed).
There are standalone (run-from-DOS) memory testing programs out there as
freeware; one such program is in pkgsrc/sysutils/memtest (it creates a
dd'able 1.44M bootable floppy image).
