keymap loading problem with Fedora 10

Hi all,

I've just installed Fedora 10 on a Toshiba Satellite. and though the installation went very smooth I'm left with one major problem.

On every boot, the first thing that happens is that I get a message saying:

Loadng /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/
which remains the only thing on the screen for long time until I hard reboot, for two or three times, then it makes it and boot properly.

I have tried editing /etc/sysconfig/keyboard as well as adding lang=en to the boot parameters in yaboot.conf but no luck.

all the best,
