This has worked well for me, logging the early boot process that
usually scrolls by on the screen. I use it on 8.3 and 9.1.
I was surprised that it managed to log console stuff that occurred
before syslogd was loaded...
# uncomment this to log all writes to /dev/console to
# touch /var/log/console.log and chmod it to mode 600
# before it will work
