Hi Tom,

I did this once with a 2.2.16 kernel for rc1 or rc2, then we switched to 2.4 and
my
handmade include did not work with it.
But I found a nice kernel patch ( http://lpp.FreeLords.org ), that replaces the
whole boot-process witha graphic and a statusbar/line.
All output from star-scripts can be passed to the statusbar via /proc/progress.
You redirect all other output to another console so no info gets lost during
boot.
But that is something for 1.0 final or later.

Bye Achim
