This kind of problem is usually caused by a harware problem, but not always. Faulty memory, bad motherboard, and IRQ conflicts are almost always at fault. Overclocking can cause protected faults. In my experience, bad memory is usually the culprit in systems with a 100 Mhz FSB. Try slowing down the CPU clock. If it works OK, memory or the motherboard is probably bad. See:
