    How to test mem stable?

    Hello, I've just got my mem up to 230MHz 2.5-3-3-9 stable in folding@home for near 10 hours... but I want to test more to see if it's ok to use day to day...

    Can you recommend me some stable test proggie that I can use to test it's stability?

    If you decide to download Memtest86 I should warn you that the directions for creating a bootable floppy really suck. If you download the Windows version - "Pre-Compiled Memtest86 v3.1a installable from Windows and DOS" - you will have to unzip the 4 files - install.bat, rawrite.exe, memtest.bin and README.txt. Click on rawrite.exe and it will open a DOS Window. At the cursor type memtest.bin and hit Enter. At the next cursor type A then Enter. Insert a formatted floppy into A drive and hit Enter. You will now have a Memtest bootable floppy that will start automatically. Drove me crazy to first time I did it.
