My linux is intialled in hda3(hda4 -swap)

In fact redhat7.0-7.2 can work in my laptop.And  i can use redhat 7.0's
bootdisk to load redhat9.0(Kernel2.4.20),but some fuction is failed.

Some trying:
Someone say update the -ac patcg,does it works?Is there a guide to do this.
And someone say append para"ide=nodam" to linux boot,still no use:(

          How to fix this problem,need your help~~


1. Partition check fails - help!


I have a PC on which I run Linux & Win95 ( work requires Gates Garbage ).  
During a period of degraded brain activity, I decided that I needed to
re-adjust the size of my Win95 C: partition.  Using Partition-It, I merrily
proceeded to do this without a single thought as to what this may do to my
Linux setup ( which resides on the same disk ).  Insert snide comments,

chunk of free space between my Win95 partitions & my Linux area when I set
everything up initially.  So I moved my D:, E:, & F: partitions into the free
space allowing me to expand my C: partition by 100Mb.  After doing so, I still
have a free space buffer between Win95 & Linux.

Now, one of my problems I'm sure, arises because I had Linux set up to mount
my F: partition, & it has moved.  I'm not sure what other problems I have
created.  I wish to resolve this without losing my Linux setup, if possible.  
I can get to all my Linux stuff using the rescue disk ( Redhat 4.2 ), although
fdisk doesn't seem to work as it should?!  To make a long story longer, the
following are the boot up error messages:

   hda: hda1 hda2 hda3 hda4 < hda5 hda6 hda7 hda8 >

I suspect that there may be an answer to my problem in the above, & I'm not a
newbie ( although it sure seems like it sometimes :) ).  However, I'd like to
get some more experienced opinions as to what to try before I go off
