OK, thanks.
That is indeed exactly what I would have expected.

I've only run this machine for a couple of hours
since sorting out the problem, but it seems to be running OK.

Also, Fedora-14/KDE Live CD seemed to run fine, as did Knoppix-6.

Could this happen if there was faulty memory?

I was wondering if memtest86+ could run at a faster speed than desired,
or something like that?

However, I'm following your experienced advice,
and ordering a new memory module.
