My new 2550 seems to work right for the first time, thanks to new memory 
modules.  The bizarre/frustrating thing was that the ONLY thing the server 
would do is perform the official Dell diagnostics flawlessly.  It bombed out 
on Memtest86 after about an hour, and usually wouldn't make it through 
formatting the discs on an install.

Perhaps Dell's memory diagnostics could be made more rigorous?
