I usually have Creative Webcam, Multimedia card reader (for SD card, mmc, 
etc), and a Cannon LIDE scanner . They all used to work under FC 7, although 
when booting FC 7 it also gave similar messages, but less and booted faster. 

I tried the card reader, and pluging in USB flash drive and they seem to work. 
Haven't tried the Webcam because it used to need GSPCA driver (and I haven't 
looked into how this would work under Fedora 10). Haven't tried the scanner 
either since someone is borrowing it, but usually  it works out of the box 
with XSane. 
In short, various USB devices seem to work despite the messages and the long 
boot (although sometime I have to unplug and plug the card reader back in, 
because for some reason it's not recognized). 

They are all plugged in into motherboard USB.

Hm.. that's a good point. I don't think I update the BIOS since I got it. Not 
sure if I want to unless I have to, since there's always a risk that I end up 
destroying the motherboard :)

So I am still left wondering what the error messages is about, if those USB 
devices seems to work, particularly rather irritating is the long boot time.

Thanks.
