Ok... I will check that out.  I guess the big thing I was trying to
figure out, was how to save all that data... I wasnt sure if it was
being logged or not, but there is some sort of mechanism in Anaconda
to handle that, as there are occasions when anaconda will generate a
dump, and it gives you the option to save the dump to disk, and the
dump contains the output from every console, as well as the python
traceback and other such stuff...

It would be nice if, as you said, all those various console messages
could be logged remotely to a central log server (would be great esp
in a datacenter type environment) or even just to save the logs either
to disk manually, or be able to export them to a console...

I was hoping I could pass something like console3=ttyS0, or
console4=ttyS0 or something along those lines to just pass the info
from each console out the serial port one at a time...  I have no
qualms with doing multiple install attempts to get the data I need...

Anyway, thanks for the pointer, I will look into that this afternoon
if I get a chance.
