Thanks, Aaron.

I'll be grabbing a copy as soon as I can. When dealing with computer problems, and suspicion falls on the RAM then this is an excellent tool to confirm or eliminate RAM troubles. I know that there is a RAM testing tool that is available from the boot menu, but, because this relies on your system still being functional enough to load files from the HDD, it has its limitations. A copy of this program can be placed on a CD and, because it is bootable, can be run directly from there when you restart/boot your system (make sure that your CD/DVD comes before your HDD in the boot order).
