:Warning: Pentium bug F0 0F

Are you sure it doesn't report:

"Intel Pentium with F0 0F bug - workaround enabled."

This means that your processor is susceptible for the Pentium F0 0F bug.
This bug makes it possible for every user to crash your computer. Mind
you, this is also possible when using Windows '95 or NT.  The message
indicates that your Linux kernel protects you against this bug.

If it Linux gives the warning as pointed out by you, you might consider
recompiling your kernel.
