New F16 install on "tablet" laptop, needs wifi firmware update

I just installed a new copy (from F16 Live CD) of F16. Install went flawless, and when it booted up for the first time (so far - doing updates now), I saw a brief message on the "text" boot screen, saying something about needing to update the firmware for my wifi card (which is built-in). It gave a web address, but I wasn't able to write the whole thing down before it disappeared.

Where can I go to view the boot log, or error message that it gave me, so I can visit the website and update the firmware?

Thanks in advance!
