Yes, using serial redirection. See if your BIOS supports it.  Basically it 
pipes all the on screen stuff to the serial port, and you connect your 
laptop to the serial port and view it (or a serial concentrator, etc).

Sorry for the confusion but the entire config file reas as

default std

label std
                 kernel linuz
                 append root=/dev/nfs nfsroot=

If your talking about the information that screams past as the Kernel is
loading, I haven't got a clue. I can see the last screen (which has no
infomation) but there must be 20 lines that scrolls off screen in less
than 2 seconds. Is there any way of slowing it down?
