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 ;>
