Bootup of SuSe 8.0


Hi: When I boot up I see two failures but the data is moving so fast I can't read what is referring to although it looks like a reference to a swap file device. I am having no trouble but the system resource chart shows no usage for the swap file.

Is there a way to stop the boot process so I can read the data on the screen?

Thanks for your past help, I really appreciate it.
