OK, removed all misc cards, devices, recabled...attempting to reinstall with
5.3, and I continue to get a "kernel: priviledged instruction fault"
followed by a reboot...RAM is brand new Patriot 2-2-2-5...mem timings?

Sounds like the usual bad hardware story..check RAM, power supply, CPU
cooling, cabling, etc.
