Faulty ram - Could it have compromised installation??

    I've spent quite a while reinstalling XP, updates and various programs on an
    old computer (PCchips AT mobo/ Cyrix MII 366 CPU) and now I'm running a
    memory test which is showing up errors in the ram. It should be easy enough
    to identify and replace the faulty memory module but what about the
    installation? - Could the faulty memory mean that files have been copied
    wrongly??

    If XP is running without crashing, I would say not.

    Its running fine now. It was rebooting randomly but only whilst online
    and replacing the CPU-guzzling micromodem with a nice Hayes ISA modem
    seems to have cured that.
