Hi davy999,

0x00000050: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
http://www.aumha.org/win5/kbestop.php#0x50

What microsoft has to say about it:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/winxppro/reskit/prmd_stp_ccgm.asp

Requested data was not in memory. An invalid system memory address was referenced. Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause this Stop message, as may other hardware problems (e.g., incorrect SCSI termination or a flawed PCI card). Use the General Troubleshooting of STOP Messages checklist http://www.aumha.org/win5/kbestop.php#general

Possible Resolutions to STOP 0x0A, 0x01E, and 0x50 Errors

"Stop 0x50" Error Message While Installing Windows

Could be bad memmory:

If this test doesn't find errors, doesn't mean it's good, the only way to really test that is to replace it with known good memmory.

one other thingy:
>>and when i try to go into f-disk ti says no fixed disks present

This is pretty normal, you most likely have your disks attached to a SCSI controller which a win98 bootdisk doesn't have the drivers for. Please use the windows setup for partitioning.

Please don't worry about any points, I'm not here for those :)

Checking out what piece of RAM is faulty can be very difficult, it's more like random troubleshooting by pulling out some and see if the problem dissapears.
One piece of software that may help you is http://www.memtest86.com (wich is a bootable disk to test the RAM) let it run on half of the sticks, see if it finds errors, if it does, take half of those sticks etc untill you've narrowed it down to only one stick.
