When I started using Ubuntu the messages at startup were nice arranged, 
and all ended with ok. But the services I start changed now over time 
and I get a bit sick about the bootmessages. To be honest I just wanna 
see the errors, or probably not even them,.... But I wanna keep them as 
a log or something.
So my question is how do I redirect these startup messages to a file?
What is the script that's first run in Ubuntu,....

Tahnks in forth,
