I'm getting a couple of error messages during the boot sequence.  These 
are the way they show up in dmesg.

The first one is:
PCI: Cannot allocate resource region 0 of device 0000:02:0e.2

(during boot) that it cannot load the hw_random module showed up recently.

Anyone know if these are important and, if so, what I should be doing?

I'm running Ubuntu Warty with all updates applied.  Kernel is
