HP 1200s EIDE Drives

I am having a heck of a time getting any OS to install on this thing. It has 4 x 80GB drives, I tried installed OPENFILER, and it reboots every 2 minutes after installing the OS. I installed CentOS, and it reboots constantly every 5 minutes once it's finally installed. During the install process, it's ran over night without a reboot..so I don't think it's memory related. Any idea or thoughts as to why I can't keep this box up?

A quick followup. I went into diagnostics on reboot and it will pass a bunch of tests then out of no where an error will appear at the top saying "Ramdrive Checksum Failed" and locks up. It then proceeds to reboot. Sound like a botched BIOS/CMOS?
