Ok, we've changed the klogctl for 3.0.23 (3.0r1) boot-floppies -- it
should suppress all kernel messages completely from console.  You can
still find them in the logs though.

That is what we call the "vanilla flavor".

Yes, any of the other kernels would probably works:

  idepci  -- for non-SCSI machines
  compact -- for SCSI machines
  bf2.4   -- Linux 2.4 based

Thanks.  Your testing helps us move forward...
