Yeah... I know that.
I would much rather see them as it is booting.
Here is the entry in /boot/grub/grub.conf

title Fedora (
         root (hd0,1)
         kernel /boot/vmlinuz- ro root=/dev/sda2 
         initrd /boot/initramfs-

I have to admit that the kernel I am using is the
mainline rleased kernel, because the ath9k driver
seems to better support my AR5008 based wifi card
(has AR5614/AR2133 chips). I tried the regular Fedora 14
released kernel from updates (,
but using it, I was unable to pair with the AP, whereas works just fine.

So, I wonder if my problem might be caused by
one of the boot stages???
