free memory testers for PC's

i have a client's machine which i *suspect* is having a memory problem. I need a free memory tester so i can test the memory. If anyone has any ideas, please lay them out here...
It is running windows XP, but i can use any Operating system (including linux if needbe) as i have dos, windows 9x, win2k, and xp at my disposal
