boot logging to /var/log/messages

Hi! I apologise for the following simplistic question, but unfortunately
I have no answer.

When I first installed linux, what got sent to the console at
boot time appeared to
correspond with what got sent to /var/log/messages. Somewhere along the
way since then, (I don't know what I did!), I suddenly discovered that
/var/log/messages was only receiving a small subset of what appears on the
console at boot time. I would be extremely grateful for any help that you
can offer towards rectifying this problem.

Once again, many apologies for the simplistic question.

Thank you in advance for all your help.
