SSHD Won't Start after Server Reboot

Ok, running RedHat 9.0. Everything was working fine, but the then the server got turned off without a proper shut down (the power was cut). Then, more RAM was added to it. After turning it back on, all of the services started fine except SSHD. It just won't start. It just returns [FAILED]. I have tried to start it many times, but it just won't start. What should I do first and what should I look for. I am relatively new to Linux, so please explain thoroughly. Thanks.

Try this from the command line:

cd /var/log
grep sshd *

This will display some messages about the errors encountered when your system tries to start sshd, and it will help us figure out what is wrong.
