Hey all, i've been using fedora for a few days, and I've rebooted quite a few times, but everytime when I start up and the progress bar goes by, italways says at the end 'starting first time boot configuration, then it'll just go to my login screen..why does it say this when it's not my first time boot? :confused:

It's a service which runs when you boot your box. You can disable the service.

run, chkconfig --list. You should see a service like, firstboot

you can then disable with
chkconfig firstboot off

WHat does the service do besides showing the text? WHat's the purpose of keeping it? (if any)

First boot is the program that runs when Fedora is started for the first time. I configures sound, time, date, user accounts, etc. You don't need it after it's been run once.
