    You say that you have rotated the ram into different slots. Have you run without each of the ram sticks yet (other than the original 128MB)? Try rotating the sticks out of your system and see how things go. Even though the software utilities have not detected a problem, your system may not "like" one of your modules.

    The B&W G3 requires a firmware (Boot ROM version in System Profiler) update. See Mac OS X: Available firmware updates The update should be installed (using OS 9) BEFORE you install OS X. Did you install the update?
