Just to be clear --my computer now seems to be "super silent" -- it
doesn't show messages even when fsck is going on (my ext3 partitions are
automatically checked every so-many mounts).

As you say, it would be nice if it did show a special message
saying"checking hard-drive" and perhaps showing a second smaller
progress bar for this process. As is, I often think startup has somehow
"frozen" when fsck is going on and hit F2 to see what's going on.
