I`m fairly new to linux..
But dmesg is run from console or terminal right...
As the kernel panics at boot time i don`t see how i can run dmesg...
If  I run the recovery mode from the cd. won`t dmesg give me the log`s 
created at the recovery boot...
or does it show the previous boot time kernel panic also.
