That message looks more hardware-related, not a result of RH9 installation.

CMOS checksum bad !Could you boot into w2k at all coz it appears that there is something wrong with the motherboard bios.Anyway do tell what happens when you try to boot into RH but this time give any error messages there is ,along with all the output on the screen.

You often get that error when your motherboard battery is dead or dying. You may well need to replace it.

This problem only appers after reboot of RH, after normal shutdown is everything OK, after reboot of W2k too. Only after reboot of RH, he magicaly change boot seq. to FDD, HDD. I must enter to setup and change it to HDD, FDD and then it runs OK, but only to next reboot RH.
