FC3 slow boot: scans logical volumes..?


I installed FC3 (fedora core 3 for keyword puposes) on an old machine i am using as an mp3 player. When it boots right after it loads the kernel then it says something along the lines of "scanning all logical volumes this may take a few minutes "(and it does). It fails on hdb which happens to be a cdrom drive than keeps going on to hdd (hard drive. I have to have it set this way the way my case is made). Is there a way to make it not do this? When i installed it i rushed through doing a minimal install (iive added alot) and clicked through the partition config. as you can see it did some pretty strange things:
Code:
# This file is edited by fstab-sync - see 'man fstab-sync' for details
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
LABEL=/boot1            /boot                   ext3    defaults        1 2
none                    /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
none                    /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
none                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
none                    /sys                    sysfs   defaults        0 0
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/hdd3               swap                    swap    defaults        0 0 (dont need this just havnt remove it)
/dev/hdb                /media/cdrom            auto    pamconsole,ro,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
ive spent to much time getting it set up to start over but im begining to believe this is why it does that scan. Can i just bypass it? thanks

Does the pause still happen after you've removed that second entry for a defunct swap file I'm guessing ?
