Memtest86 3.0

Has anyone on the list had trouble with memtest when running on a PowerEdge

I have a box (PE2400) that will start running the tests, but will die before
test 2 completes (this is reproducible).  By "die", I mean that memtest will
bail out and give an "Unexpected Interrupt - Halting" error with what looks
like a memory dump.

I've tried two different versions - 2.9 and 3.0 - with two different types
of media - 2.9 was floppy, 3.0 is CD.  Both versions were obtained as
"binaries" from the memtest website.

I'm not sure if this is truly a memory issue or not.

Anyone have an idea?
