Thanks for your response and suggestions.

About identifying the faulty DIMM: Is the memtest provided on the CentOS5
installation disk best tool for this purpose? And do I need to switch ECC
off from BIOS while I test the memories?

The EDAC error msg reports problems with bank0. Can I trust this? I tried
installing edac-utils to get more information, but after installation it
only generates segmentation fault:

# edac-util --report=simple
Segmentation fault

# edac-util -s
Segmentation fault

# rpm -qv edac-utils
