I got my replacement dimm from Crucial ... installed it ... and a few days
later got another panic.  Same error codes!

I downloaded memtest86 and ran it ... it reported errors at what APPEARED to
be the high end of memory.  I ran the same memtest86 disk on another machine
and it reported no errors.

I then ran the Dell memory test and it reported no errors.

I repeated the test with the original 128mb dimm that shipped with the
system and got similar results.

Unfortunately, I did not note the exact error locations that memtest86
reported ... but I can re-run the test tonight.

Any suggestions on how I should approach Dell about this?  Are they
receptive to output of 3rd party memory test programs?
