Well, most of these messages are done by the kernel, at that point there
is no way to redirect any output.
But there is a kernel patch (package name kernel-patch-lpp) that
displays a progress bar instead of all this output.
You'll lose your first console though, i think. (so you can only login
graphically or on tty2-ttywhatever)
It's not too easy to setup, too, and i believe it made problems on my
sisters notebook.
(you need graphics mode at bootup, too, but most notebooks work better
that way anyway - VGA often sucks on TFT screens ;)
