I would suggest running the memory test, I had a new AMD64 
machine that was getting corruption on the drive files, and after 
reinstalling twice, ran the memory test, and found that one of the two 
memory moduals in the machines was failing the memory test on 
test 8. Running on the single modual the machine had no problems, 
and got the vendor to replace the set, and ran test. 

If you don't have it installed on you system, you could also run it off 
the ultimate bood cd.
