I had the same thing ... after a fair bit of reading on linuxdoc.org (I
am not very experienced with linux), I found that this is an expected
thing to see, if you don't compile certain network protocols, like IPX.
The message is perfectly harmless, but aesthetically displeasing, so
here's what I put into my modules.conf to shut it up:

alias net-pf-3 off
alias net-pf-4 off
alias net-pf-5 off
alias net-pf-9 off
alias net-pf-10 off

these represent the network protocols (that I know about) that I use -
ie. non-TCP/IP. I think I found it somewhere in the ethnet or kerneld

Doesn't everybody see these messages during boot?
