There are good probability that you have some ram problem.
Run memtest86 in standalone mode to check it.

Thanks for responding.

What is "standalone mode"?  I know how to boot to
single-user mode by typing the image label followed by
"single" at the LILO command line.  Is that what you mean?

memtest86 is a boot image that will run by itself and check memory, no need of a kernel (that means standalone here). A lilo entry like

# --------------------------------------------------------------------------
# memtest image
  image = /boot/memtest86.bin
# memtest ends
# --------------------------------------------------------------------------

should work once the memtest86 package is installed.
