There is a simple program named 'memtest' in 
the debian package 'sysutils'. It is startable
from within a shell.

There is a tool called 'memtest86' in package
'hwtools'. It seems to be a bit more complicated,
but I've not tried it yet.

If someone knows more memory-checking programs 
I would be very happy to receive a short mail.
