alright so during my boot i have to hit the return key at certain points in order to make it continue. like it errors or hangs indefinitely at these points unless I hit return.
I took quiet out of the menu.lst entry and checked where exactly it is hanging. this has been happening since i updated to 8.10 from 8.04

3.13 hub 4-0:1.0: 2 ports detected
68.8 clocksource tsc unstable

ata1.00 configured for UDMA/100

147 ata2 SATA link down (ssstatus 0 scontrol 300)

*using shell-style concurrent boot in runlevel S

*setting preliminary keymap...

*preparing restricted drivers

anyone with ideas would be great.

occasionally it hangs on other entries as well. is there a way to reinstall any of the things that would be causing it to hang?
