I just rendered my system unbootable by trying this.
(rummages for a disaster disk)
The redirection apparently fails because the root filesystem is mounted
readonly, and thish screws up the rest of the system startup.
If this can be made to work, I was thinking that "| tail -a /var/log/boot"
might be better than the simple redirection.
