I am attempting to run a burn-in test on a bunch of 3G p4 xeons. Memtest reports no errors, but if I run cpuburn in the background, and lucifer in the foreground, I get 32 errors overnight. I get exactly the same number of errors on all 6 test computers. testing several working desktops, I see that they all also have errors.

Is all my hardware messed up? or am I doing something wrong?

I'm using lucifer and burnP6 of a knoppix rescue cd.

Statistically speaking, it's highly improbable that so many machines would have the exact same errors. I would say it's more likely to be something about the combo of the two programs, but I've not run them to have personal experience. But I seriously doubt it's the hardware, so the machines are probably fine.
