I get a kernel Oops for 2.1.88 when running the install for

My machine freezes solid, I have to powercycle. I have been using oss for
every kernel from 2.1.50 to 2.1.85 without problem, and reverted to
2.1.85 for this reason.

The gory details:

Intel Pentium II 266
linux 2.1.88
glibc 2.06
Yamaha OPL3 SA3 soundcard.

Tech support from oss claims I have bad memory, but I don't buy that.

oss-install hangs while checking for kernel version compatibility with:

unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address c4829dc0

(I omit some here, because I can't copy and paste, the machine is frozen
and I have to note things down by hand. I can fill in details if necessary)

Does anybody see similar symptoms?
