Also look for a file /var/log/dmesg.  The early boot process (actually
in /etc/rc.sysinit) does the dmesg command for you once and
saves the output in that log file.

You can also try pressing the 'Scroll Lock' key, especially if
your having boot problems such that you can't even get to
a prompt to use dmesg.

If you're really ambitious, you can edit the boot scripts and
put in sleeps and such.  I've even done this by manually editing
the initrd image's nash scripts, for those times when I had
problems in the very early boot process.
