Fatal Exception 0B

Here's a good one. I've install Win 95 on a AMD K6-2/300 system with 32 Mb PC100 ram. I've used two motherboards (ASUS P5A-B and FIC VA 503+; both on AMD preferred list). The only other things installed currently are a 36X Cyber Drive and a 2 Mb S3 Aurora video card (I've also used a 4 Mb Virge DX). The error message I get during reboot is Fatal Exception 0B at 0117:00000C39. Any thoughts or suggestions.

The RAM, is it new?  If it is it could be bad.  Try putting the RAM in another machine that works fine and see if it works.  Also, try going into the BIOS and see if there is an option to setup the RAM for 60ns, 70ns, etc...  I had a problem setting up my home built system with bad RAM being the problem.  Let me know.
AMD K6/2 300 runs at 3x100MHz - if not set correctly, it will give u no end of errors, also I haven't heard of 32Mb of 100MHz SD RAM (you call the ram PC 100 - is it EDO, fast page or SD RAM?) 100MHz comes in 64's and 128's so I would suggest changing the ram to 64Mb 100MHz SD RAM (168 pin stick) and checking the board or bios settings for the CPU.

the board is set at 100 MHz... and the memory is the new PC100. You should check your sources on the memory.
