booting RedHat - generating SSH1 RSA hosh key [FAILED]

Hi all,
I have resized my RedHat9 linux partition with PartiotionMagic 8.0 under windows, and linux has found lots of bad/duplicate blocks during first launch after resizing. It has successfully recovered all the bad blocks, but I recieved the following error: "can't fing PAM configuration for gdm". After reinstalling gdm from installation cd the error has gone, but the only thing I see when starting graphical interface is a window with a red cross image and a button with no text at all! clicking the button gives no result. I get "generating SSH1 RSA hosh key [FAILED]" while booting, everything else is [OK]. Can it be the problem? Is it possible to do something with it, or reinstalling is the only way?

SSH1 is not used nowadays, it is insecure, so you better disable it.
Support for RH 9 was dropped in April 2004, this distribution is DEAD.
