Hey all

I'm having a major issue with the installation on my Aspire One. I've used
unetbootin to create the USB startup disk and I've succesfully booted from
it, but a few seconds into the startup process, I get the following:

/sbin/hwdetect: line 336: 506 Segmentation fault modprobe $i > /dev/null
ath_hal: module license 'Proprietary' taints kernel.
ath_hal: (AR5210, AR5211, AR5212, AR5416, RF5111, RF5112, RF2413,
RF5413, RF2133)
wlan: trunk
ath_pci: trunk

I've also tried this as well:

but when I come to reboot, I'm not presented with the menu that was
mentioned and the thing just boots normally. I've tried it with the Fedora
installation and it works fine there, so there just seems to be a problem
with the Arch version.

Thanks in advance for any help offered
