Look into /var/log/messages. You should find it there. You could also try
to boot from a floppy with a small kernel and the promise driver as a
module. Then load the driver and then try to mount, checking
/var/log/messages to see what goes wrong, and when.
Btw., to boot from large disks, insert the line "lba32" somewhere to the
beginning of /etc/lilo.conf (and maybe comment out the line "compact").

Maybe somthing was confused when you "reshuffled" your partitions?
When booting from the floppy, give it a try and mount /dev/hda1, ...,
dev/hda5, etc. somewhere and let mount try to detect the fs type.
