Segmentation faults, rebooting, etc. ... this sounds exactly like a RAM 
problem. Remember that the CDROM is used only for booting, so a bad IDE 
cable probably won't affect anything once the system is up.

Try running memtest86+ (http://www.memtest.org/). You can either download 
the image from that site (floppy, USB key or CDROM) or as part of the INSERT 
bootable mini-CD Linux project (http://www.inside-security.de/insert_en.html) 
or the Knoppix bootable CD Linux project (http://www.knoppix.net/).
