    This happens to me occasionaly:
    Nov 3 10:38:30 localhost kernel: hda: ST51080A, 1033MB w/128kB Cache,
    LBA, CHS=2100/16/63
    Nov 3 10:38:30 localhost kernel: hdc: CS-R36 0, ATAPI CDROM drive
    Nov 3 10:38:30 localhost kernel: ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on irq 14
    Nov 3 10:38:30 localhost kernel: ide1 at 0x170-0x177,0x376 on irq 15
    Nov 3 10:38:30 localhost kernel: Partition check:
    Nov 3 10:38:30 localhost kernel: hda:Started kswapd v 1.4.2.2
    Nov 3 10:38:30 localhost kernel: [PTBL] [525/64/63] hda1 hda2 hda3 hda4
    Nov 3 10:38:30 localhost kernel: VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly.
    Nov 3 10:38:30 localhost kernel: Adding Swap: 32252k swap-space

    It causes no problems..... If it bugs you so much, just don't look at the
    screen when ya boot up ;>
