Installing 1.3.1 BIG Problems !!!

I have installed 1.3.1 about 5 times on 5 different computers. Almost
everything went smooth there. BUT NOW I am trying to set up my own
computer and I am running in BIG trouble:

my system: Tyan Tomcat iV Dual with 1 Intel P200 MMX (HX Chipset)
	   Adaptec 2940 UW SCSI with IBM DCAS 4,3 GB  UW disk
	   Matrox Millenium II 
	   128 MB RAM 
	   Toshiba XM600B 16x IDE CD ROM
	   Soundblaster AWE 64 PnP

I have almost exactly the same system here at work, only the Board is an
Tx97-XE with 64 MB RAM and there is only a 2.1 GB UW IBM harddisk
connected to it. The installation went fine for that system.

On my system I get all kinds of errors:

1) free non existent swap page . segmentation fault
2) general protection:0000  Segm. Fault
   lots of numbers
3) wrong blocksize on device 08:01
4) sometimes a lot of numbers like [<0032354>] float across the screen
5) Couldn´t get a free page (at boot up time after the SCSI disk was
6) Sometimes it reads about half of the disk and then just does a soft

I have tried the installation for about 20 times using Debian 1.2.4,
1.2.10 and 1.3.1 (July disks) but nothing helped. I have reformatted for
several times, used less swap space (64MB instead of 128MB) and used non
at all. I have tried to change some BIOS settings to get it going, but
that didn´t work either. I tried to use the mem=128MB option at the boot

But now I have no idea anymore. I checked the hard disk with the "verify
disk" from the adaptec scsi setup. I could succesfully install Win95 and
Win NT4.0. The only thing I can imagine is that the 3 1/2 Floppy is
damaged in some way ??!!

Does anybody know any help ?? I don´t want to be stuck with Win95 !!!!!!
PLEASE help me urgently !!!
