do a google for Memtest x86 iso, burn it on to CD and boot from it. run a few passes and see if you get any errors. If you do then its the RAM.

Spawn ,I have the same board and ran into the same problems. When I first loaded XP I had to pull a stick out otherwise it would "Blue Screen". I got it running stable by chosing "fast" instead of Turbo in the bios. I have my 2.4b running at 2.7 with 512 of PC2700.
