Oh, increased information is great. Taking one whole screen line to tell me
that each of sd[abcdef] uses 512 byte hardware sector size is over the hill.
How about one line saying sda:512, sdb:512, ... that would be nice and still
contain all of the informatin.

WRT scrollback, there is none on a Herc mono card. Sure, I can syslog after
boot, but I might not be able to get that far. Anyone have any ATI EGA wonders
that they want to get rid of? ;)
