Thanx for the reply: however, i said in easy words... :)

No, actually I don't think it's anything about memory (i hope, that's what
memtest86 is about.. :-) since all other versions worked fine, except the
cpu-load and the bungee sometimes...

Hmm...you could check your memory with Memtest86 or have a look at your
messages if any harddisk crc errors occured.
This was the reason why my CS Server crashed every 7mins ;)
