Error Message During Bootup - Fedora Core 7


I am very new to Linux. I just installed Fedora core 7 and it can bootup fine. However, I always get two error messages:

One is :
PCI BIOS bug: MCFG area at F8000000 is not E802 reserved.
PCI: Not using MMConfig

The other one is:
Oct 3 22:26:39 localhost kernel: usb 1-1: device descriptor read/all, error -71

I can still bootup and run KDE without any problem. Could anyone tell me how can I solve these problems? My machine is HP nc8430

Many thanks.

If I would check behind every warning and error in my bootlog, I'd never get out. Don't worry about it. As long as everything works...

Make sure you are running the most current BIOS for your machine.
