You might try running a newer (i.e. 2.4.16) kernel.

For me it works fine with the woody gcc and kernel 2.4.9-2.4.16, with
proctype Duron.

I think you've flaky memory or a broken mainboard, running memtest86
(apt-get install hwtools, dd if=/usr/lib/hwtools/memtest86.bin
of=/dev/fd0 IIRC) might help.
