It's looking for /boot/System.map-2.2.14; if you use
make-kpkg to build your kernel packages, this will be 
installed with your kernel and modules.  It doesn't
hurt if it isn't there, but klogd won't be able to turn
kernel addresses in messages into function names.

This is because of a change in the way routing works between
kernels 2.0 and 2.2.  You used to add a route for the network
address when you configured a network interface, you don't 
any more.  If it irritates you, comment out the line(s)
route add -net
route add -net ${NETWORK}
from /etc/init.d/network.  Aside from the message no harm is

Probably, you used modconf to automatically load the cdrom
module at boot time; this adds the module's name to 
/etc/modules.  Remove that line and it won't try to load the
module anymore.  Again, no harm done.
