Its harmless, for some reason the initscripts seem to want to start up 
toshipa_acpi on all the laptops here

Another harmless initscript problem, they are not needed on 2.6

You can fix this by adding

install floppy /bin/true

to /etc/modprobe.conf

You can fix this by changing the line about hda in /etc/smartd.conf to hdc -- 
the DVD drive doesn't support smart is all.  Dell has the DVD on IDE0 and the 
HDD on IDE1 for some bizarre reason.

You need to edit /etc/X11/XF86Config

Scroll down to section "Device", somewhere in there will be a line beginning 
Driver.  Change what is after the Driver part to read "vesa".  Then see if 
running startx from a console will do any better.
