We are putting in 2 new HP DL360-G7 servers.  They have dual 6-core Intel processors and 32GB of memory.  I am looking for a bootable solution I can use to burn-in the processor and memory on these boxes.  Can anyone suggest a server-class solution I can use?  Thanks.

Any linux cd with memtest will do the ram, otherwise a live linux cd and something like seti@home?

Drpoppers - Thanks.  I know about memtest.  I was hoping there was a pre-compiled ISO somewhere that would do an extensive test allowing me to turn on/off the features I want to test.

Thanks again drpoppers.  I know of that one as well, but it only allows for the individual testing of memory and cpu.  I am looking for a bootable version of something like PassMark BurnInTest Pro.  They have a document on how to create one, but I am not that saavy.
