More info would be appreciated. Does this error come up while booting, or does it boot fine, and its just an error message? On a side note, this distro looks to have replaced PHLAK... I might have to take a look into using it. I had never heard of this distro until now.

Seems it is a live CD, if it doesnt boot, Im assuming you cant get to /var/log/messages, or dmesg?
