Error messages at boot time


When I boot my system, I have some error message indicated FATAL. Most of them are that os tries to detect some device that I don't have on my computer such as scsi device or so.

Can you guys tell me that how I can track back to that startup message since it is just so quick I don't have a chance to write the error message down.
And if I want to prevent it from detecting those devices, should I modify the file /etc/rc.d/rc.modules?

Thanks for help

The command "dmesg | less" will show you the boot messages, and adding a module to /etc/hotplug/blacklist should stop it loading at boot.

Thanks.

It is possible to do that in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules? I comment the line that causes the os to detect some devices.

You can comment a line to stop a module loading.
