Math group,

I am trying to start doing numerical solving of Diophantine Equations. I 
want to do extensive calculations, but the kernel aborts for lack of memory.

For example, the following command aborts midstream:

Table[If[(x^3-1)/(x-1)==(y^n-1)/(y-1) && x!=y,

I have tried doing many smaller steps, but then I have a very long file of 
multiple commands.

Would you make a suggestion as to how to process these solving commands with 
large values of the variables?
