Question Trouble when warm booting from windows?

Ever since I started with Linux (RH9 and now FC2) I experiences some esporadic complete freezes. No log, no kernel panics, no change when using kernels, and no appaent cause. After many months I now suspect freezes don't happen only when I use linux after rebooting from windows 98. Since I started turning off the system before booting linux I'm freeze free.
Is there a techical possibility that some device (I suspect the S3 video board) is left in some state so the linux driver chockes eventually and that that does not happen after properly resetting all hardware?

I know this is a hardware vodoo question, but let me hold on to the hope that I found a pattern to my freezes.

Hardware voodoo is a touchy subject.
My laptop cannot handle reboots with Linux - when it comes up after having been rebooted the ALPS touchpad isn't recognized at all, no matter how many rituals I go through.
