There are notes somewhere about more than 4 GB RAM on 32 bit OSes. I'd start by trying this with 2GB RAM.

of the many possible Blue Screens that you are seeing.

Almost all will have a message such as IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and a set of hex addresses such as:
0x00000D1 (0x0000000C, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0xF86B5A89) and often even the faulting driver such as:
gv3.sys - Address F86B5A89 base at F86B5000, DateStamp 3dd991eb

Give us the information the blue screen gives you to enable better assistance.

From other replies it appears that you have an unsupported hardware problem with unavailable drivers but the actual bluescreen messages will be valuable aids.
