Memory Test
Hey Group,

Just a big giant Thanks! to whoever's idea it was to put the memory tester in
the Suse splash screen.

That thing saved me a bunch of work yesterday on one machine that wouldn't
boot....

The machine started and when trying to load SuSE it made it to the sync
module and froze....

I restarted it and ran the memory test which showed an array of bad memory
locations.....and it even gives the addresses!!

Changed the memory chip and was up and running again in under 10 minutes!!

Bravo to the SuSE team!
