Well it won't be the SCSI system reporting the error message as your Zip
drive is IDE (/dev/hdc). Have you tried unplugging the Zip drive? Does
that stop the error messages?

If you are confident that you have proved the RAM to ok then check all
your data cables, especially to the HDD.

Re-seat the memory just in case, better still if you have more than one
stick, swap them around, just unplugging/plugging will clean the
contacts. Make sure the tabs are locked in place.

Look at power problems, either dirty power (i.e. the DC voltage is not
being regulated properly - may be the PSU is going to die soon), or you
are overloading your PSU.

What wattage is it and how much power is supplied on all the voltage
rails? (you can get the info from the label on the PSU). Try paring your
machine down to the minimum, i.e. Video, HDD only and see if the problem
still occurs.
