Memory Diagnostic that runs from hard drive???

    I found several excellent memory diagnostic programs.
    Problem is that they all run from bootable floppy or CD.
    My laptop has neither.
    Is there a memory diagnostic program that can run
    from the hard drive?
    I'm willing to jump thru some hoops in the boot process.
    System is windows 2K, but I'd also like to do it on 98se.
    thanks, mike

  2. No memory diag is going to be able to run while an OS is up and
    running, so you are going to have to have a separate boot partition,
    and load it there (mumble, handwave). Does your laptop support
    booting from a USB device?
