My setup's problem(s) I traced to one of the KVR400X64C3AK2/1G pairs.
Originally, I had two KVR400X64C3AK2/1G installed in DIMM slots 1, 2, 4,
& 5. I experienced errors during installation from CD. Ntoskrnl.exe
problems on boot, and multiple forms of BSOD.

I finally decided to remove 3 of the 4 memory modules, run a single 512M
stick in DIMM slot 1, and I saw the same issues. I did the same again
with a single memory module from the other pair. No problems. I also
increased the DIMM voltage +0.1V.

I've applied for an RMA from Kingston, will see if problems continue
when I get replacement memory modules. Because, I would like to know if
this a timing issue with this motherboard when using this memory
configuration (two matched pairs of KVR400X64C3AK2/1G).

Got the "Kingston KVR400X64C3AK2/1G 2X512MB" back from RMA, now running
with 2G RAM (400MHZ) and no problems. Was able to preform a full system
backup while play UT2004 at maxs settings. A most pleasureable experience.

Advice. If you got problems like errors off the CD when installing
Windows 2000, 'ntoskrnl.exe' corrupt on boot, BIOS screen failing to
come up, and lots of random bsod's.. have a look straight away at the
memory.
