Re: apparent crashes persist.

I had no idea this was going to be this difficult!

Don't see a memtest option on grub, though I've installed memtest86+.
Evidently I have to edit the grub configuration, or use its c or e 
options when booting, but I'm completely clueless on this.

lilo is currently refusing to work, details have just been posted in 
a thread on debian-user.  Something about trying to read from a 
nonexistent device.

The floppy installation script for memtest86+ fails:
* Creating msdos file system

1440+0 records in
1440+0 records out
1474560 bytes (1.5 MB) copied, 0.002501 seconds, 590 MB/s

* Installing GRUB files
Copying menu.lst
/lib/grub/i386-pc/*: No such file or directory

Could it be that it hasn't been updated for AMD64?
There's an /lib/grub/x86-64-pc directory.
Should I make the obvious change in teh script?
Should I report this as a bug?
