I just read that grub doesn't require that you rerun it when you change the config, so that's not the problem...

Does /proc/cmdline tell you that the ATA and idebus (idebus, incidentally, should be the speed of your PCI bus, not your IDE cables -- it was misnamed -- but it's only used in PIO modes, not DMA/MWDMA/UDMA setups, so that might be why you never noticed a difference) options are now no longer set?

Was this a clean install of RedHat? Or did you try to upgrade? I've seen upgrades to some really weird things to machines...

Edit: Your log file appears to have some bits of X's log, some bits of /var/log/messages, and a large piece of either /boot/ or /proc/ksyms. I don't know if that helps anyone or not, but those are the files that the contents of your X log file are usually in.
yes.. I have rebooted (I've never rebooted my linux installs that much.. thought I'd left that behind with deinstalling windows =)

ro root=/dev/hda3 mem=nopentium hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi

the install was clean. only non-system data files back-upped.
