It isn't the answer to your question, but: 1. Try do use a
subject that is in relationship to your question. 2. Try
to wrap your lines at approx. column 70, this makes correct
quoting easier. I was free to correct them both. :-)
Now regarding your question: It is possible to change the
color attributes for the kernel messages which FreeBSD
usually displays white on black, and OpenBSD grey on
blue. As far as I remember - I tried it once -, there are
makeoptions in the kernel configuration file to be set.
See the handbook section about how to build a custom
kernel for the correct procedures.
The correct settings are mentioned in /usr/src/sys/conf/NOTES,
lines 1339 cont. (1343 cont):
# The following options will let you change the default colors of syscons.
But I'm not sure you can change the settings for the boot
manager itself in an easy way. Maybe a modification of the boot
loader's source code makes it possible...
