/var/log/boot.log includes only local7 facility logs. Whatever uses
local7. The only one I've found is /sbin/dhclient-script.

Best choice for kernel messages would be /var/log/dmesg or the whole
/var/log/messages.

To view all kernel messages via the serial interface "kern.*
/dev/console" should be enabled in syslog.conf (which is disabled by
default) if this is an option (i.e. via rescue cd).
