No. I mean yes, I did try after your advise. Thanks a lot. Thanks

Now I have another problem. I took HD from the older machine (Linux)
and put it in newer one. I can boot. I did even yum upgrade (this is
now become 5.2 CentOS). But I can not start X. Video card is on
motherboard. I have no idea what kind of video cheep it is. Looking to
log files did not give me a clue.
How can I at least have VGA mode? I dont want to use Windows ;) And I
have a lot of valuable data on my Linux HD... ;(
