Just a thought along another tack: have you verified the hardware is
good? That thouyght strikes me because of the nature of the messages you
are getting. I have a mainboard with the VIA 8237 chipset and nvidia
graphics (I don't recall which model ATM) and run 5.x w/o problems.

If the unit has been around a long time, try re-seating all the memory,
cables, PS connectors, etc. Have you run a memtest86(?). Does a visual
inspection show any signs of distress on the board (discoloration of
capacitors, leaking, etc)?

Check BIOS settings too - maybe something set wrongly? Is the CMOS
battery good? Do BIOS settings hold?
