Help: new motherboard, moved disks to new devices ==> frequent crashes RH9.0 - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi. I recently switched motherboards and had to reorganize my hard disks on a win98/RH9.0 dual boot machine. The mortifying part is that win98 seems more stable than it has ever been, while RH9 crashes within an hour each time. The old motherboard was an Abit BP6, meaning smp.

    Default Help: new motherboard, moved disks to new devices ==> frequent crashes RH9.0

    Hi. I recently switched motherboards and had to reorganize my hard
    disks on a win98/RH9.0 dual boot machine.

    The mortifying part is that win98 seems more stable than it has ever
    been, while RH9 crashes within an hour each time.

    The old motherboard was an Abit BP6, meaning smp. I'm no longer using
    an smp kernel, but I did make a number of system changes to get things
    to work properly (like sensors), and I don't have much idea what those
    were.

    I also had to make a number of changes - fstab, mstab, devices.images
    (?? I'm emailing from win 98 now) to be able to boot RH after moving
    the disk to a new device.

    So, I'm looking for advice on how to install/reinstall/uninstall
    something to make sure that the system is properly configured for the
    motherboard.

    Any other suggestions to track down the cause of a crash would be
    appreciated.

    (The crashes give a screen lock, where the display remains frozen the
    way it waas last, and the keyboard and mouse produce no effects.)

    I don't have your problem, mine is that cannot now access win xp but I
    will have to learn to live with that as my mandrake 9.2 setup is rock
    solid and I can read everything on my windows system in linux so I will
    just have to live with it. 
    Does this mean you are foe sale? :-)

    Given the ease of re-installing Linux, why not just do a clean
    re-installation? Save a copy of your personal files and any special configs
    on floppy or, if you have a CD-R/RW drive, on a CD-R before doing it?
