This really does sound like hardware problems to me, sorry.

Doesn't prove anything, I'm afraid. We've run test scenarios in which
we *deliberately* screwed up the hardware config in some way (bad
overclock, known bad cache or RAM, wrong RAM clock rate, etc) and ran
both Win95 and NT on them without the symptoms ever manifesting
themselves. The same systems die very quickly with FreeBSD, proving
that either 95/NT just don't push the hardware to the same degree or
are better at masking the symptoms of hardware which really isn't
doing what you think it's doing.
