Core 1 hangs on booting at Freeing unused kernel memory

I have Core 1 working quite happily on a Via Epia-M 10000 Nemehiah
motherboard and I intend to replace the system with one based on a Via
Epia-M 6000 Motherboard.
I have transferred the memory from the original PC and the hard drive.
After changing to an i586 kernel it boots and gets as far as the
"Freeing unused kernel memory: 124k freed" and then the system hangs.
The new configuration boots quite happily in the original motherboard.
Oddly there are no messages in /var/log/messages from booting on the new
configuration so I suspect that it's probably something to do with not
getting access to the root partition. In the map below the first
partition in the /boot partition, the second is / and is labelled "/".
