I've invoked many times memtest86 from Grub without any problem. 

But since you're having so many problems, so often, you don't really need such 
a time-consuming tool (I think). Just run your PC with one memory module 
installed at a time and see if you get correct behavior or not. Its faster, 
given the frequency of crashes you reported. Try firefox for example since it 
is causing u so many problems. Chances are that one memory module will show 
the signs immediately (in my case, there was a faulty mem module and when I 
used it alone, PC wouldn't even boot correctly, so it was piece of cake)

BTW, what memory do you have? is there any chance that you're giving it the 
wrong voltage from the respective BIOS settings?

Good luck,

PS: I also have Asus A8N (no GPU onboard), running Etch64, with 2.6.15 and 
nvidia 1.0.8762-2, everything is fine.
