You don't say what kind of "crash". Does it just "hang"?

A year or two ago some change to the kernel or sound drivers caused my
system to hang during a warm boot at the point where it loaded the sound

It would boot OK if I powered off, pushed the reset button, or booted DOS

My solution was to configure the system to always do a _cold_ boot.
This is done by the following line in lilo.conf:

append = "reboot=c"
