thorough real-mode memory tester
Memtest86 scans your RAM for errors.
This tester runs independently of any OS - it is run at computer boot-up, so that it can test *all* of your memory. You may want to look at `memtester', which allows to test your memory within Linux, but this one won't be able to test your whole RAM.
It can output a list of bad RAM regions usable by the BadRAM kernel patch, so that you can still use you old RAM with one or two bad bits.
This software has been forked some time ago as memtest86+, which is also available in Debian. It has sometimes support for more recent hardware than memtest86 has.
Both memtest86 and memtest86+ are being worked on in parallel.
A convenience script is also provided to make a grub-based floppy or image.
