The problem is likely with the code, not with your config.

Unclear, in which case it is usually a matter of RAM init not being
completely correct.

It would also be interesting to try with different graphics cards,
and without any graphics card at all.

Further it would be interesting to try all different combinations of
your 3 PC133 DIMMs. Start with one, move it around every slot, and so

Always capture serial output for each test.
