I have a 486 that was to be set up as a gateway,
however some strange crashes and suggestions have led
me to believe that the memory (physical RAM and/or
swap) may be corrupt. I know the HD is old, so I would
hope the problem is with bad blocks on the disk, and
not with the 8Mb RAM. If so, I could beef up another
486 with the extra 8Mb, and use that instead.
So, does anyone know of any boot disks available
(running any OS, probably DOS) that contain a
diagnostic tool for checking the integrity of RAM?
