[CentOS] CentOS 4.2 issues

Hello CentOS,

I've just taken 2 old servers running CentOS 3.x, wiped it out, and
installed CentOS 4.1

The systems seemed to work fine with CentOS 4.1, but when I proceeded
to run yum -y update, all the RPM's (101) download and seem to install
fine - however, upon reboot, partitions such as /usr/ and /var will
not mount (ext3).  These machines both use the Intel S875WP1 P4
Mainboards.  Both use SATA Drives.  One uses the promise controller
(which on install seems to find a suitable driver).

Anyway, I've also tried installing directly from the CentOS 4.2 Server
CD, same issue.  Install goes fine, but bootup won't mount /var

Any idea what this is all about?

Best regards,
