troubleshooting my hardware



A while ago I was having trouble installing linux on a certain machine. I
tried windows to see if it might also have problems - it did, crashing
frequently. An attempt last night to re-install linux failed - I got quite
far, selected which packages to install, and machine just hung during
installing the packages (it hung on a message about "uncompressing
ncurses-term").
Can anyone suggest good ways to test my hardware for defects? I know about
memtest86 - I'll be running those tests - but are there any other good testing
suites out there? Preferably linux based and bootable from a floppy...

thanks
alex
