IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL Blue Screen

I have a Dell PowerEdge 6300 server with the following specs:

        4x Xeon 500 Mhz processors
        1gb RAM
        PERC/2 RAID controller
        8 73GB Hot swap hard drives

When installing Windows 2000 Server I get the following BSOD error during the installation process:

        *** STOP: 0x0000000A (0x7fBA5974,0x000000FF,0x00000000,0x800639B4)
        IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

        ***Address 800639B4 base at 80062000, DateStamp 3c989e1e - hal.dll

        Beginning dump of physical memory
        Physical memory dump complete.  Contact your system administrator or
        technical support group.

The error happens when the machine is 'Registerring Components' right after 'creating start menu'

I downloaded the RAM test utility from Dell and the RAM seems to be ok.  

Any help would be much appreciated.

According to this http://www.aumha.org/win5/kbestop.php#0x0a, you have a RAM or driver problem.  Microsoft has a help page: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=165863

if this was caused by a new driver, try booting into 'Last Known Good'....

Trouble did end up being RAM related.   we pulled 1 of the GB sets and voila.  All was right in the world.

thanks Callandor.  Sorry the points took so long.   I had forgotten about this one.
