As well as turning off the beastie, is there a way to suppress all the
dmesg and other output, so that the first thing to appear is the KDM or
GDM login screen? When I show FreeBSD to people who have only seen
Windows before, their first reaction is how geeky all that text looks as
it rolls by. They are turned off before I even get to the login
screen. Most current Linuxes are 'better' in this respect.
I realise it may make it harder to debug failed startups...
