I tried the ram at 1.9 volts (from the 1.8 in the BIOS) and it worked
good on the bench for a few minutes, but after SSH'ing in however, it
locked up soon after.   I thought perhaps the nic is flaky, but removing
a single stick of ram from the board seems to stabilize everything whether
it's a console or ssh session.

I have the option in the bios of turning the ram speed down to 667mhz all
the way to 400.  I will try all 4 sticks at 400 today.  There are a ton
of other settings for the dram that I do not know what they do.

Found an article on google groups suggesting using all 4 slots is a crap
shoot.  Hmm..
