The message comes from  (on one of my systems) /etc/init.d/microcode_ctl

which is part of the kernel-utils package.

I  started getting this message when I upgraded to CentOS 4. My  
installed kernel-utils is version 2.4-13.1.66. Is this meant for  
version 2.4 kernels and if so, is there a version for 2.6 kernels? I  
don't see anything listed with "yum list available"
