Question Warning Message at startup

Yesterday I installed redhat 7.2 and added the command via the linuxconf tool, to mount my fat32 partition automatically at boot time. while I had redhat 7, it booted up normally without any messages, but now it gives a warning message saying that fat32 support is still alpha, and stops booting. If I press cntrl+c it again resumes. This isnt to much of a bother but still if there is a way to disable the warning message, I would be happy to disable it. Furthermore what sort of a risk is involved if mounting fat32 is still in alpha stage.

I believe that it's trying to do an ' fsck ' ( file system check ) on your fat32 partition and that support of that feature isn't complete. Check your /etc/fstab file for the line that is used to mount your fat32 partition. Make sure the two numbers at the end of the line are ' 0 ' ( zeros ). I hope that helps.
