Switched back the CPU clock frequency to 100Mhz (the CPU is a Pentium
III, Coppermine, 550E), and run Memtest - test 7 again: now the
errors are gone.

This confirm my previous question: using PC100 SDRAM with an overclocked
CPU is risky.

I have now more RAM, but a slower computer (base 550Mhz instead of the
overclocked 759Mhz). However, I'm more confident that the system will
run stable.
