hah, had to transcribe this whole thing with pen and paper since I
couldn't think of any other way to copy it.  I put the install cd in for
FreeBSD 4.10, turn on the server, hit [Enter] to boot immediately
instead of going to command prompt.  in the Kernel Configuration menu, I
just skip and boot the default kernel.  It finds devices that scroll
accross the screen, network cards:

RAM parity error, likely hardware failure

Fatal Trap 19: non-maskable interrupt while in kernel mode

This is a Compaq DL380 server (dual P3 733s and ECC RAM).  I've swapped
out each memory module with a known good memory module one by one, and
every configuration still generates this error.  OpenBSD and Redhat seem
to run just fine on this machine too.  What can I do?  I don't
understand what is generating this error exactly so I don't know where
to start.

The install cd for FreeBSD 4.9 generated the same error.  The install cd
for 5.1 hangs without error messages.  if it is important for me to give
you more information about that I will go test it again and write down
the screen contents.  What i really want is 4.10 though.
